Experimental Music and Visuals | Amon Tobin

Amon Tobin is a Brazilian contemporary experimental musician who provides a large-scale live visual  to accompany his music. Tobin uses samples, field recordings, and break beats, and voice distortion to produce his eclectic sound.

With his latest achievement, ISAM, Tobin fabricates a cube-like (almost ‘Tetris’-like) visual set arranged around him as he performs, acting as a companion piece to his music. Tobin’s music draws comparisons to The Field and BT, and his unique sound and visual presence provide a beautiful, moving, and unique aesthetic.

For more on the Tobin experience, check out this Youtube clip of ISAM live (trailer) and the NPR Discussion about Tobin’s mind-blowing performance at Moogfest 2011.
