Always On: Don’t Miss This 50-Hour Progressive Electronic Music …

Do you think you can sustain the funk for two whole days? Here’s your chance to find out.

Starting today at 12 pm Eastern (9 am Pacific) right here at the top of this story, you can watch Always On, a continuous, 50-hour livestream of progressive electronic music performed entirely by a roster of women, transgender, and non-binary artists. The musicians will be broadcasting from around the world—some of them in home studios, some in music venues in front of crowds.

The lineup is stacked, and each artist gets one hour. Performers include synth pioneer Suzanne Ciani, Madame Gandhi and Pulpy Shilpy from India, Iran’s Nesa Azadikhah, LA’s “psychedelic soul” purveyor Sassy Black, Nonku Phiri from South Africa, Ela Minus from Bogota, Colombia, and Ana Paula Santana from Guadalajara, Mexico.

This multi-day digital be-in, which ends at 2 pm Eastern on Friday, is being produced by the folks at Moogfest, the electronic music and futurism festival held each May in Durham, North Carolina. The festival—which, as implied by the name, is hosted by the synthesizer manufacturer Moog Music—is using Always On as a promotional push for the 2018 Moogfest gathering, and as a way to highlight the depth and adventurousness of the show’s offerings. (Several of the Always On artists are also performing at the next Moogfest.)
