Re: Amon Tobin - ISAM Live

It would be a perfect show if he had the technology of Deadmau5´s set going on. Sadly, Tobin is pretty boring live. ISAM is also a very boring album...lots of noise and sound design that really go nowhere.

But seriously, I´m not alone here. Many people (me included) were expecting another AT album, with lots of samples and great arrangements (editing), but ISAM is barely danceable. It just...doesn´t groove.

That's true. I like the album in general, but there are actually only two or three songs that have that Tobin "Soul". For me it's a more experimental album, going out of what he usually does.

And in this album I really feel some kind of "nature" side, am I the only one ?

Yes, it sounds very organic, which is about the only thing I like about this album. If he had combined his trademark grooves with the organic sounds in the album, it would have been a great release.

Yes it would have been great to have that kind of fusion with the organic style.

This album is more of a "voyage", ambient or downtempo like stuff.
Maybe a little too repetitive through the sounds going on in each song.

Re: Amon Tobin - ISAM Live

Possibly the best audio/visual show I'll ever have the pleasure of seeing. The part where everything turns into Gundam during Goto 10 was awesome.

he has no trademark. He is just an expert at sonic art. That album wasn't conceptual. It was an idea he had on a rainy day out in his garden or something. If you've followed his journey you note that his music is evolution of ideas. He even stated he wanted to leave the grooves behind for this album.

I'm glad he did what he did and I've been with him from the start. I've seen the show it's cool it is what I expect of him. I really think he puts big names to shame with his concepts and idea.

I did chuckle to myself wondering how many melbourne idmf'ers were under the one roof at the same time

Great show for visuals/sonics..
