A satellite of 24-HOUR DRONE, a partnership of Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who?
12-HOUR DRONE is a satellite of 24-HOUR DRONE, an immersive event and all-encompassing experience, and a roving, transatlantic series created and presented by Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who?, featuring musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone.
Bringing 12-HOUR DRONE to Winnipeg for the first time during winter’s depths as part of a significant new music festival is a divine opportunity to invite the threads of the region’s culture to weave into one. Melissa Auf der Maur, co-founder of Basilica Hudson, in collaboration with WNMF Curator Matthew Patton, are curators of the 12-HOUR DRONE.
We aim to bring cultures together, demonstrating the diversity inherently present within all music. The cross-pollination of instrumentation, musical traditions and culture creates a tapestry of human experience, elevating the whole, greater than the sum of its parts. Diversity of sound links things not usually linked through a seamless sonic and communal experience, with connections and dialogues opened in unexpected ways.
FOR OPTIMAL DRONE EXPERIENCE
Come prepared to spend the winter night with us. An Immersive Experience. An all-encompassing Sound Experiment.
Because of the unique setting + limited seating, we recommend drone attendees BYO Survival Kit! Think warm + comfortable clothes, camping pads, yoga mats, pillows, sleeping bags/blankets, water bottles and endurance-enhancing snacks. Be prepared to drop in, let go, and drone out!
