For those of you wetting your pants because you never got a chance to witness Animal Collective‘s left of the dial art film, ODDSAC, then this snippet of news might make you either jump up and scream for joy (especially if you’re around your hip peers) or reach for a another new pair of underpants. More screenings around North America have been set for the end of March, and in addition to the surefire visual mindfuck, all screenings will be introduced by director Danny Perez and members of the beloved Baltimore born, New York hyped sensation.
Directed by Perez, the film is a “complex digital manipulation” that just so happens to have a score by Animal Collective. If Perez doesn’t sound familiar to you, then you’re just not attending enough Black Dice and Panda Bear shows, as he’s the visual director for all of the uber-psychedelic projections that appear behind the bands on-stage.
“[ODDSAC] was meant to be an open-ended operation of audio-video synthesis, the passing back and forth of visuals and sound so that each would inform the other and create an organic structure,” says Perez.
If you think you’re hip to the idea — meaning, you have enough facepaint and live in one of the six cities across America — then you should throw down $15 and see the film all your co-workers at the water cooler won’t ever see. If you’re lucky, you might meet some cool kids and throw one ultra alt afterparty, too.
