Basilica Hudson & Le Guess Who? announce 24-Hour Drone line-up
2017 marks our biggest Drone yet, as our series also expands to Salford, UK, and Malmö, Sweden.
An immersive event and all-encompassing experience, 24-Hour Drone is a roving, international series presented by Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who?, featuring musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone. Music has the power to bring people together where words and actions fail. Drones, or sustained tones shaped by voice or instrumentation, transcend time, genre and music itself. 2017 brings our biggest Drone yet, as the series expands to satellite programs in Canada, Sweden and the UK.
