We’re only days away till AMON TOBIN’S ISAM SPECTACLE
Posted on 30 May 2012
Amon Tobin's audiovisual spectacle ISAM, is only days away from premiering in Australia for Vivid Sydney at the Sydney Opera House.
Following sold out tours across Europe and North America, Amon Tobin's takes projection mapping, electronic performance and technological syncopation into more immersive territory. Amon Tobin's reputation as an innovative artist has long been recognised by critics and peers alike; with ISAM, he has finally captured the imagination of the broader public worldwide.
This 3D spectacle is a landmark development in concert presentation enhancing
In collaboration with award-winning design houses V Squared Labs and Leviathan, the Brazilian born producer has constructed a custom-built 25ft, 3 ton cubic installation, acting as a morphing multidimensional screen. Tobin himself is perched within the structure's core, revealed to the audience in key moments of a visual narrative. Like the fantastical battle scene depicted in ISAM's artwork, Tobin pilots crashing machines, ripples and waves, and shape-shifting explosions in an overwhelming sensory experience. A natural extension of his diverse catalogue on the esteemed Ninja Tune label and various video game soundtracks (Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory), it is a testament to Tobin that ISAM's visuals do not overshadow the music, a result that can be distilled to his underlying philosophy - 'Creativity does not really need technology - it is the other way around'.
