Amon Tobin ISAM is an immersive audio visual show that made a huge imprint on the world of electronic music and visual arts.
The groundbreaking 3D animation, real time computer graphics and projection mapping pushed the 4D medium to new levels.
The experience was directed by Vello Virkhaus and the team at V Squared Labs in collaboration with Amon Tobin, Leviathan
and set designer Vita Motus.
The experience first premiered at the prestigious Mutek in June of 2011 with great acclaim. The production then toured
around the world with increasing interest and success till the end of 2011.
After Picking up from where Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live 1.0 left at the end of 2011, ISAM Live 2.0 began with rapturous responses at two Coachella headline performances. The tour then went to Australia for two sold-out, back-to-back performances at the iconic Sydney Opera House in June. The performances, streamed live from Sydney, accumulated over 500,000 views. ISAM Live 2.0 additionally made a hugely celebrated appearance at Sonar festival in Barcelona on June 15th. The show came back one last time to play Outsidelands 2015 in San Francisco.
The ISAM Live 2.0 construction was enhanced with new audio and visual elements, including material from Tobin’s beat-orientated alias Two Fingers, taken from the ‘Stunt Rhythms’ album released September 2012 on Big Dada. Almost all ISAM Live 1.0 and 2.0 shows sold out and wowed audiences worldwide. The show has been widely publicized and won numerous press accolades in magazines such as Wired, Fast Company, LA Times, Chicago Reader and Rolling Stone.
