September 13. Just as it inspired its creator, Frederic Church, Olana continues to inspire contemporary artists of many mediums. Co-sponsored by Wave Farm's WGXC, this cutting-edge convergence returns to the magnificent state historic site to once again offer location-specific performances and works in sound, installation, broadcast, and movement. Held in the afternoon so as to complement the evening events of the same weekend's Basilica Soundscape festival nearby, the outdoor program features such top avant-experimentalists as Kenseth Armstead, William Basinski, Steve Bull, Jane Carver, Ellen Driscoll with Daniela Gomez, Michael Garofalo, Mckendree Key, Man Forever, and Laura Ortman, all of whom will "reflect on and react to Olana and its integral viewshed as an ambitious and early environmental work." 2pm. $20, $30 ($10 students with photo ID; children 12 and under free). Hudson. (518) 828-0135; Olana.org.
