It's not like Amon Tobin hasn't been ambitious in his approach prior to the release of this year's ISAM. But it was made pretty obvious by his label when the album leaked that this just might be his most conceptually elaborate effort to date. And a big portion of ISAM's impact apparently relies on the way Tobin and his team translate the its music to a live setting. From what we can tell from the screenshots and video provided, they have definitely created what looks to be a mind-melting experience. And they're ready to make their debut here in the U.S. and Canada this fall with a series of nine gigs, two of which are part of electronic music festivals.
