Amon Tobin's life and work in sound design, spanning over 20 years, has produced some of the most important, era-deining records of his time. His work has continuously been setting the pace of sonic exploration and musical adventurism that has helped to shape much of what has come since.
Beginning in 1996 with Adventures in Foam the distinctive otherness of sound, which Tobin inhabited, was revealed. The musical and technological development of his productions bore out the modern classics Bricolage, Permutation, Supermodiied. Foley Room then launched the deinitive sonic expedition towards 2011's ISAM album.
ISAM utilized advanced synthesis processing and production techniques traditionally reserved for sound design in ilm, and paved the way for a radically new kind of audio-visual performance. The pioneering technologies employed and meticulous execution saw the
landmark experience hailed as a raising of the bar for live production the world over. Sell out shows followed everywhere from the Sydney Opera House to the Olympia in Paris to the Roundhouse in London, LA's Greek theatre along with headline festival stages including Sonar, MUTEK and Coachella.
Amon then spent eight years developing a series of works under different aliases, alongside the material under his own name. These are now gradually being unveiled on the Nomark label.
2019 saw the release of Fear In A Handful of Dust and Long Stories. The irst new alias ONLY CHILD TYRANT saw its debut Time To Run in the same year. In 2020 the long-awaited TWO FINGERS album Fight! Fight! Fight! was released to widespread acclaim and the FIGUEROA alias was revealed with an album, The World As We Know It, which was broadly hailed as an "album of the year."
His long established reputation for musical ingenuity is unconined by genre, and he remains one of the most visionary electronic artists of his generation.
