Following a sold out US tour, Ninja Tune’s Amon Tobin will bring his hotly anticipated ISAM (LIVE) AUDIO/VISUAL SHOW for the first time, to the North of England.
The legendary producer’s latest album, ISAM, will be performed at Manchester Academy on 19 May as part of an incredible LIVE show at 2012’s FutureEverything festival.
‘ISAM, Live’ features a stunning 25′ x 14′ x 8′ multi-dimensional/shape-shifting art installation that surrounds Tobin and envelops him and the audience in a unique visual 3-D journey that accompanies tracks from the album. Narrative, exhilarating and bombastic – the show uses projection mapping, generative/audio reactive real time, and pre-rendered elements with custom software that control the show. The visual elements are synched to Tobin’s music to make a large scale next level HD experience.
‘ISAM, Live’ has been developed by the award winning V Squared Labs founder Vello (whose impressive roster includes Jay- Z, Ministry and Red Hot Chilli Peppers), the set is built by Alex Lazarus (Vita Motus), who has worked with Massive Attack, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.
Brazilian-born Amon Tobin signed to the prodigious Ninja Tune in 1996. He has recorded seven critically- acclaimed albums under his own name on Ninja that have helped define the label as a force in musical innovation and diversity. The depth and scope of Amon Tobin’s work have had a far-reaching influence, garnering respect amongst producers and artists both within and outside electronic music and remains among one of the most visionary electronic artists of a generation.
