Animal Collective to Perform New Music Inspired by the Coral Reefs

This February 24th, Animal Collective will perform an hour long set of new music inspired by the coral reefs, during which Coral Morphologic will project “a cosmic world of fluorescent coral.” The show will take place in the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center.

Coral Orgy will be presented by Borscht Film Festival and III Points and its aim is to showcase the groundbreaking scientific work in coral reproduction by the following environmental non-profits: Coral Restoration Foundation (USA), SECORE (GER), and Project Coral (UK).

Here’s one example of the musical enchantment that Animal Collective can deliver to match the mystery of the coral reefs.
