Last March, Animal Collective joined forces with visual artist Danny Perez for a new art piece called Transverse Temporal Gyrus at New York City’s Guggenheim Museum. The three-hour installation saw the Guggenheim transformed into “a kinetic, psychedelic environment”, complete with new Animal Collective music (blasted through a 36-channel speaker), projections, costumes, and props.
Now, with help from filmmaker Bobby Boothe, Animal Collective is sharing a six-minute short film that documents the project and includes six minutes of previously unreleased music (via Pitchfork). The sneak peek is a trippy affair, complete with strobing lights, paintings that appear to melt, and waves of ethereal noise. Watch it now at Animal Collective’s Facebook page.
