From the recent announcement:
Plexi is proud to announce the release of ODDSAC: A visual album by Animal Collective and Danny Perez. ODDSAC is a feature film collaboration between the band Animal Collective and filmmaker Danny Perez, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2010. The film was co-conceived by and stars Animal Collective, whose 2009 album "Merriweather Post Pavilion" was named album of the year by SPIN, Entertainment Weekly, and Pitchfork, and topped critic's end of year lists worldwide. ODDSAC is a dense and surreal layering of audio and visual elements that eschews conventional narrative to create a visceral viewing experience.
ODDSAC features an original score with new songs from the band and complex digital manipulation by Perez, a debut filmmaker and visual artist known for his concert projections with musicians such as Black Dice and Panda Bear. ODDSAC represents a new synthesis of music and film, a "visual album" whose songs will not be released in any other form. ODDSAC is the result of over four years of intense collaboration between Perez and the band. Watch the trailer here.
"A mind-frazzling piece full of vampire monks, demonic fakirs, and lengthy episodes of trance-inducing pattern loops. A confrontational and immersive experience." -The Guardian
"Whatever visual sustenance your everyday life may provide, this intense rush of unadulterated imagination will leave you feeling alive and invigorated. ODDSAC's baffling nature is also its greatest charm – sit back, disengage your critical faculties and allow the vivid colours and sounds to assault your senses. It's the nearest you can get to an out-of-body experience without touching the hallucinogens." -GQ
