Celebrating the museum's 50th anniversary, the Baltimore-based band and Perez will present 'Transverse Temporal Gyrus' on March 4. Guests will be able to explore the spiral museum and enjoy music Animal Collective composed specifically for the project as well as "video projections, costumes and props, rendering the band members and performers into intense, visual abstractions," according to the press release.
"As New Yorkers we are all familiar with the everyday noise around us -- the car alarms, the subway trains braking, the music in bars -- so familiar that sometimes we drown them out," the band said in a statement. "But then do we not realize how these sounds are affecting us? How they make us feel or act? With this in mind we wanted to create an environment where people could take some time to listen to other kinds of sounds and get away from those familiar sounds of the city. Keeping in mind the birds of the jungle, we've created an array of sounds with Animal Collective's music that is seemingly random ... or is it?"
Guggenheim Museum members can purchase their tickets now for $25 while non-members will have to wait till Friday and pay $30.
