BASShenge : Recreating a full-scale, interactive Stonehenge for Burning Man 2012. This is our first of four campaigns to raise $20K.

About this project

This is our first of four fundraisers to raise a total of $20,000.

Stonehenge.
Literally: The Hanging Rock. A mysterious circle of towering granite blocks, some of them 20 feet tall and 50 tons heavy and some of them not much bigger than you. 

Although the specific reasons for construction are unknown; the site has been used for rituals, burials, ceremonies and it predicted the seasons and other astronomical events with seemingly impeccable accuracy.

Monumental, meticulous and mathematically miraculous; Stonehenge is an epic undertaking of headache-inducing proportions, built methodically over 1600 years and still standing today.

It is, very easily, one of the greatest examples of architecture and art. And, this unimaginably complex piece of ARTchitecture seems to ensnare all the senses… except one.

Whoever built Stonehenge, be it people, angels or aliens, gifted to us a breathtaking experience for which we are thankful but we feel, through our immeasurable gratitude and awe, that something is missing;

IT NEEDS MORE BASS.

 BASShenge is a tribute to a World Wonder. Huge monolithic stones placed in two circles, a path leading to the circles from the northeast. We are going to flatter this boggling creation in the most sincere fashion known to man: imitation.

With one slight adjustment; we’re replacing the Some of theStone in Stonehenge with 100,000 watts of BASS. 
Huge speakers varying in size and shape will help comprise the imitation stone blocks we are using to recreate Stonehenge. You see, all we want to do to The Hanging Rock is add more Rock.And maybe throw a raging party on a timeless landmark.

To that end we have: Artists from a wide variance of musical and artistic genres, large scale lighting that will include over 120 LEDS lighting the outer ring of stones, pyrotechnics and fire art, crop circles projected on the surrounding playa, interactive art displays and multiple circus, performance, and fire troupes. This project is currently underway and will be presented at Burning Man 2012 In Correct Alignment with the sun, stars and the moon..

BASShenge spans 150 diameter and stone heights vary from 14’ to 20’ tall. Stones will be constructed of 1 ½ pipe steel. Stone are built in a modular fashion to provide strength and fast setup and take down. Once erected the stones will hold over 2000 lbs dynamic load. Re bar will be placed at the foot of each stone to ensure stability and safety. All stones will be covered in a light colored  breathable shade cloth. The light color will allow light to shine threw and also give us a perfect canvas for projections.

Our Plans for BASShenge Go beyond Burning Man. Our Plan is to bring the henge out to other festivals to share with everyone. So If you dont see us at Burning Man you could see us at LIB or any other huge event. Creating Jobs and Inspiration.
