Animal Collective Launch Transverse Temporal Gyrus Website
In March 2010, Animal Collective and visual artist Danny Perez teamed up on a multimedia installation called “Transverse Temporal Gyrus” at New York’s Guggenheim Museum. This weekend, audio from the installation was made available through a 12” vinyl, released exclusively for Record Store Day 2012. Today, a new website launched to bring the “Transverse Temporal Gyrus” even further. Danny Perez explains Animal Collective’s first truly developed and realized website as follows:
“The website allows people an opportunity to experience ‘Transverse Temporal Gyrus’ in a unique way,” says Perez. “Just as the installation refashioned what a traditional performance and environment would be, the website reformats these materials again into something new. Video, audio, and images from that one evening provide a unique perspective to both people who were there and those that weren’t.”
The Transverse Temporal Gyrus website features a free downloadable audio player that recreates the computer program designed for the Guggenheim installation over 2 stereo channels. This will give listeners a new and unique collage each time the program is run. You can now head over to the Transverse Temporal Gyrus website and make your own sound collages.
