Amon Tobin ISAM : Live 2.0 with Holy Other (at Orpheum Theatre)The Cedar and First Avenue present
Amon Tobin is regarded as one of the most influential electronic music artists in the world. He has released seven major studio albums since 1996 under the London-based Ninja Tune record label. He is noted for his unusual methodology in sound design and music production.
ABOUT ISAM LIVE:
For the first time in Amon Tobin's career, he's now able to perform a show based around the concept of an album and deliver a truly unique visual experience to go along with his renowned audio experiences. Tobin has officially stepped away from previous DJ centric performances, and is now bringing a large scale live audio/visual experience of his latest album ISAM to select cities around the world.
A truly visual onslaught - abstract narrative, subtle and bombastic - using projection mapping, generative/audio reactive real time and pre-rendered elements combined with custom software to control the show. The visual elements have been synched to ISAM to make a large scale next level HD experience.
The show features a stunning 25' x 14' x 8' multi-dimensional/ shape shifting 3-D art installation surrounding Tobin and enveloping him and the audience in a beyond 3-D experience. Amon conceptualized the show as a projection mapped "visual score" to the music from ISAM. He performs the music as a navigator of a large craft through a surreal visual narrative. The spectacular mapped content follows the framework of the narrative carefully storyboarded between Amon and Vello Virkhaus, then realized through award winning V Squared Labs in collaboration with Leviathan. A collaborative feat between the minds of madmen, scientists and visionaries.
Picking up from where Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live left at the end of 2011, the immersive A/V show made an even bigger imprint on the world of electronic music in the past 2 months. ISAM Live started off 2012 with rapturous response at two Coachella headline performances this year. A sold-out night at London’s Brixton Academy was shortly followed by a tour run in Australia, which included two sold-out back-to-back performances at the iconic Sydney Opera House in June. The performances, which were streamed live from Sydney, accumulated over 500,000 views. ISAM additionally made a hugely celebrated appearance at Sonar festival in Barcelona on June 15th.
For the Autumn run of dates throughout America, ISAM Live 2.0 will launch: introducing the new ISAM construction, enhanced with new audio and visual elements. Part of the new content in the ISAM Live show will be composed of forthcoming Two Fingers material. Tobin will be revealing new music from his beat-oriented alias, in celebration of the highly anticipated sophomore album due this Fall on Big Dada. All past ISAM Live shows have sold out, so get your tickets now or be lost in the dust come fall.
"The best performance I witnessed at Coachella (perhaps in my life): Brazilian DJ/ producer Amon Tobin." - MTV
