Basilica SoundScape, a carefully curated weekend that’s been called “the antifestival” by various publications for offering of a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature, is co-curated by Brandon Stosuy (The Creative Independent), Basilica Co-Founder and Director Melissa Auf der Maur and Basilica Co-Founder Tony Stone. In 2017, we welcomed back previous BSS Creative Director Michael Renaud to handle all aspects of visual design for the event and added the talents of a special guest curator, Jenn Pelly.
