about

Pionnier de l’écurie Ninja Tune, Amon Tobin est aussi l’un des artistes les plus visionnaires de ce très respecté label existant depuis plus de vingt ans. Né au Brésil dans les années 70, il arrive à Londres vers 1980 et jeune adolescent, commence à s’imprégner de hip-hop, out-jazz, dub et divers styles musicaux. Durant la décennie 90, alors que le breakbeat prend Londres d’assaut, Tobin s’essaie à la drum n’ bass et sort en 1995 son premier opus en tant que Cujo. Bien que très influent, ce pseudonyme ne dura que le temps d’un album. Bricolage, sorti en 1997 sous son propre nom, signe le début d’une période des plus riches et prolifiques pour Tobin. Permutation en 1998, Supermodified en 2000 et Out from Out Where en 2002 viennent confirmer sa réputation d’innovateur intrépide, avide de découvertes musicales en tous genres. En 2005, il se mesure avec brio aux jeux vidéos en produisant la bande sonore de Chaos Theory: Splinter Cell 3 et innove encore avec Foley Room (2007) construit à base de « field recordings ».

Cette année, Tobin présentera en première mondiale une performance audiovisuelle de haut calibre construite autour de son dernier album, ISAM. Plus grande que nature, l’installation artistique multi-dimensionnelle enveloppera l’artiste et le public pour une expérience allant au-delà de la 3è dimension. Synchronisant la musique de l’artiste avec un flot continue d’images créées à base de mapping et autres logiciels customisés originaux, la performance promet d’être une expérience visuelle de haute définition – narrative, subtile et démesurée.

It’s no stretch to argue that Ninja Tune standard-bearer Amon Tobin is one of the most visionary artists to emerge from the two-decade history of the venerable UK label. Born in Brazil in the early 70s, Tobin arrived to London in the mid-80s as a teenager and began soaking up a potent mix of hip-hop, out-jazz, dub, and other disparate forms. By the time breakbeat culture had taken over as the sound of the moment in the early 90s, Tobin was trying his hand at producing adventurous drum n’ bass, and by 1995 he had recorded and released his debut album as Cujo. Though influential, Cujo only lasted for one album. By the time Tobin returned in 1997 with Bricolage, he was working under his own name. Bricolage was the beginning of a prolific period in Tobin’s life that turned in some of his best work. 1998’s Permutation, 2000’s Supermodified, and 2002’s Out from Out Where solidified the producer’s reputation as bold innovator of the breakbeat and a voracious listener of all styles of music. By 2005, he had turned his attention to video games with the soundtrack for Chaos Theory: Splinter Cell 3. Meanwhile, 2007’s Foley Room was built around field recordings.

This year, Tobin makes his MUTEK debut in grand style and scale, presenting a larger-than-life world premiere of his new audio-visual project, which has been built around his new album, ISAM. The show will feature a stunning 25′ × 14′ × 8′ multi-dimensional, shape shifting 3-D art installation surrounding Tobin and enveloping him and the audience in a beyond 3-D experience. The performance promises to 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 deliver a large-scale next-level HD experience.
