The masterful Amon Tobin returns to Bloc with an all new presentation of his ISAM project, featuring a stunning 25′ x 14′ x 8′ multi-dimensional / shape shifting 3-D art installation surrounding Tobin and enveloping him and the audience in a beyond 3-D experience. One of the most visionary artists working in electronic music over the last fifteen years, Amon has established a reputation for musical ingenuity that is unconfined by genre, whether working with the classical avant garde Kronos Quartet, or D’n’B legends Noisia, or on his own in some invented form. A modernist in the best sense of the word, his audio-visual live show extravaganza pushes the boundaries of what a live show can really achieve, musically flitting from experimental electronics to resounding rhythmic power and beyond.
