Amon Tobin Box Set & ISAM Live 2012

Pre-order the Amon Tobin 'Amon Tobin' Box Set now.

Over the last fifteen years, while other producers have come and gone, making a noise and grabbing headlines before failing to live up to or with the hype and fading away, Amon Tobin has calmly and quietly built a reputation as one of the pre-eminent electronic musicians of his generation. From his growing obsession with found sound, through his collaborations and work with everyone from the Kronos Quartet to Ryuchi Sakamoto to Philip Glass, on into his film score work and his innovative sound design for video games, Tobin has become a byword for quality and breath-taking originality. And with his live show for ISAM stunning audiences around the world (almost three million hits on YouTube and counting, plus a crowd that can include anyone from Brian Eno to Deadmaus, Keith Flint to Public Enemy, Trent Reznor to Muse), for the first time, his profile matches his many achievements. What better time, then, to release some kind of over-view of his work so far, less a career summary, than a dip into much of his work which has so far gone under the radar?

The Amon Tobin boxset is a strictly limited edition release and will come in the form of a beautiful high quality, bolt-fastened mechanical 'press'. Packed inside are 6 x 10" vinyl, 7 x CD, 2 x DVD and several posters. Most of the material is unreleased, almost none of it has ever been available on a physical format before. It includes new music, unreleased dub plates and a wealth of archive material: Amon Tobin's earliest audio experiments (never been played in public before), film and television score work, unreleased score work, deleted bootlegs, ISAM live show DVD, ISAM live audio album, remixes, cover versions and re-interpretations of the ISAM album, remixes Amon has produced for others, a recording of the (November 2010) Royal Albert Hall orchestrations of Amon Tobin and more...

Beautifully designed and packed with the kind of content which will finally secure Tobin's place at the top table of electronic music, this box set will convert the unconverted to this artist's unique and often startlingly beautiful uses of sound.
