Approved: Amon Tobin – ISAM live
By Andy Malt | Published on Thursday 2 June 2011
Amon Tobin has been at the cutting edge of electronic music for over fifteen years, since launching himself under the name Cujo in 1995.
Quickly switching to his real name, he released a series of impressive albums through Ninja Tune, such as ‘Permutation’ and ‘Supermodified’, before taking video game soundtracks to a whole new level with his 2005 soundtrack to ‘Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory’ (which was recently remixed by a range of artists, including Daedelus, King Cannibal, and Kid Koala for new game ‘Splinter Cell 3D’).
For the ‘Chaos Theory’ live shows, Tobin began performing with a self-built Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound speaker system. Now, for the live show to accompany his recently released new album, ‘ISAM’, he’s adding 3D visuals into the mix, thanks to a specially created stage set and some clever video projection. The show comes to London’s Roundhouse on 17 Jun, and the below video explains how it was all put together. You just need to keep reminding yourself that it’s not CGI.
