Animal Collective & Danny Perez: Transverse Temporal Gyrus
This is surely something I would love to see more of: a collaboration by two artistic mediums to deliver an experience that surpasses their individual art. Psychedelic science. Experimental visual artist Danny Perez and Animal Collective are going to manifest their theory through sound and colors in an already sold-out exhibit at the Guggenheim Museam. Transverse Temporal Gyrus is inspired by the senses, elements that heighten & affect them, and our reactions.For the Guggenheim’s 50th Anniversary, the band Animal Collective has collaborated with artist Danny Perez on a site-specific performance piece that will transform the museum’s rotunda into a kinetic, psychedelic environment. Transverse Temporal Gyrus will feature original recorded music composed specifically for the event along with video projections, costumes, and props, rendering the band members and performers into intense, visual abstractions. During the evening, guests are invited to freely explore the space in order to fully immerse themselves in the environment created by Animal Collective and Danny Perez.
