Burning Man Project: BASShenge, and No, It’s Not Fish!

The code didn’t work, but we tried to embed the video here. We recommend watching it.

People are collecting money to create a Stonehenge replica, fully aligned with the cosmos, for Burning Man* 2012. We quote:

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; …we’re replacing the Some of the Stone 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..

Check it out. Dudes. Notice the gifts offered on the right side of the webpage to those who pledge. For a $300.00 pledge you get “a custom handmade BASShenge Druid Cloak with soft fuzzy lining. Color options available.” Dude!!

Of course, if this happens, people, we want pictures!

*There is a history of henges at the Burning Man Festival. We have posted two others, with links to more: Sol Henge, which was another large musically-related circle (links to a mudhenge and a twinkiehenge from Burning Man on that page), and a henge made of dead computer towers, another item doomed to extinction before long.
