Animal Collective has returned with Tangerine Reef, their audiovisual collaboration with “avant-garde coral macro-videography” duo Coral Morphologic, today. The album and film are both below. Find the album on Apple Music here.
The project is in celebration of the 2018 International Year of the Reef. Tangerine Reef originally premiered during David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption earlier this year in New York.
The film aspect of Tangerine Reef takes viewers into the oceans to explore the rare reefs of the oceans and to find “a literal underwater collective of animals,” as a press release notes. Also according to the press release, there was no artificial enhancement used in the film which meant the “visual tone poem consisting of time-lapse and slow pans across surreal aquascapes of naturally fluorescent coral and cameos by alien-like reef creatures” are 100% natural.
