AMON TOBIN - LIVE @ CAMDEN ROUNDHOUSE 17th JUNE - LARGE SCALE "BEYOND 3D" AUDIO/VISUAL SHOW PLANS UNVEILED

Amon Tobin creates aural treasures each time he touches studio equipment. He breathes vitality into a stagnant genre with each drum hit. He rejuvenates the pallid genre of electronica every time he permits the world to glance through the twisted digital window of his music." Pitchfork

May 23rd sees the release of the seventh record by electronic pioneer Amon Tobin. Entitled 'ISAM', it revolves around the use of invented instruments and synthesising natural sounds.

“It’s by far the most exciting development in my personal quest for some control over nature,” Tobin explains. “Anything from a grain of found sound to my own voice can be transformed into something new.”

The album is Tobin's most thrilling, experimental and yet simultaneously accessible work to date; a musical statement that despite being a new direction, is a logical step from his previous releases.

The album campaign will be accompanied by an all new, highly ambitious, breathtaking live show at the Camden Roundhouse on 17th June. For this one off set of shows, Tobin will be stepping away from previous DJ centric performances, and instead will be providing a large scale live audio/visual experience to select cities around the world. Developing the show alongside Amon is the award winning, internationally published V Squared Labs' founder Vello. His impressive roster includes Jay- Z, Beyonce, Korn and Red Hot Chilli Peppers amongst others. Building the set is Alex Lazarus (Vita Motus), who has been on the production crew at Coachella Festival for eleven years, and has worked with everyone from Flying Lotus, Boys Noize, and Massive Attack, to Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.

The show will feature 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. A fantastic visual journey to accompany his music.

It will be a visual onslaught - narrative, subtle and bombastic - using projection mapping, generative/audio reactive real time and pre-rendered elements combined with custom software to control the show. The visual elements will be synched to Tobin's music to make a large scale next level HD experience.

For the first time in Amon Tobin's career he'll be able to perform a show based around the concept of the album and deliver a truly unique visual experience to go along with his renowned audio experiences.
