Amon Tobin to put on surreal audio/visual performance of latest album Isam
– by Shadi Maceac
Brazilian musician Amon Tobin is stepping away from his DJ-centric performances for a large-scale live audio/visual performance of his latest album Isam in select cities around the world. The tour, or at least the North American portion, kicks off in Vancouver at the Vogue Theatre Sept 28.
According to the press release, 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.”
