Animal Collective - Transverse Temporal Gyrus

12-inch Vinyl LP

In March 2010, Animal Collective and visual artist Danny Perez (director of Oddsac, “Summertime Clothes” video, “Who Could Win A Rabbit” video, “You Can Count On Me” video , and Panda Bear live visuals) put on an installation called “Transverse Temporal Gyrus” at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. For the audio, each member of the band made individual sounds and songs. Over the course of two three-hour performances, the basic tracks were fed into a computer program that randomized the track order, and sometimes randomly combined stems from one track with stems from another. The program also panned the music in various directions around a 36 channel surround sound system that ran through 36 speakers set up from the top of the Guggenheim’s l ramp to the bottom.

The music on this 12” is a collage we made consisting of the original tracks, as well as live recordings made inside the Guggenheim before the doors were opened to the public. It will be the only physical format on which any of the music will be released. Coinciding with Record Store Day, we will also launch a website which will contain an audio player that recreates the computer program designed for the Guggenheim event. This will give listeners a new and unique collage each time the program is run. Danny Perez, who created the artwork for this 12”, will also create video content for the website consisting of footage from, and projections used in the original event.
