SWTB have performed live psychedelic visuals since the mid 1960s. After performing with bands including Cream, The Velvet Underground, Sly and the Family Stone, Pink Floyd, The Who, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and The Grateful Dead, the collective disbanded in 1975. Lucky for us, they re-formed in 2009 and have been performing with musician Miroslav Tadic.

Single Wing Turquoise Bird Says:
“This clip is a brief excerpt from “Invisible Writing”, a recording commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver as part of the traveling exhibition “West of Center: Art and the Counterculture Experiment in America”. The original 47-minute piece is a high definition record of live performance in which the eight artists of Single Wing Turquoise Bird project improvised dynamic compositions upon a single screen. Miroslav Tadic’s musical score forms a responsive weave of sound and image.
