Leviathan, Pure Filth, Ninja Tune: ISAM Tour Sold Out
Posted on November 10, 2011 by michael
The biggest tour story of fall 2011 is definitely Amon Tobin‘s ISAM: Live. The first time in the artists’ history that he’s presented his music in a cutting-edge visual format is taking North America by storm. By far the hottest ticket on the concert circuit, ALL DATES are completely sold out and at a record pace. The show feature’s the stunning 25? x 14? x 8? multi-dimensional/ shape shifting 3-D art installation surrounding Tobin, enveloping him and the audience in a beyond 3-D experience … toasted by everyone from Billboard, Wired, Fast Company, Wall Street Journal, LA Times, URB, Time Out New York and many more! Ninja Tune bass diva Emika opening most dates in support of her upcoming self-titled debut release as well as Eskmo and Lorn in select spots.
Chicago-based, design-focused production company Leviathan produced the show’s projection mapping, creating ethereal CG narratives and engineering the geometry maps for an entire stage of stacked cube-like structures. Taking the performance further, the Leviathan team also developed a proprietary projection alignment tool to ensure quick and accurate setup for the show, along with custom Kinect control & visualization utilities for Amon to command.
Adding the final element to the unlike-any-other tour experience is the booming bass courtesy of sound provided by Pure Filth. If you’ve ever been lucky to attend a Low End Theory, Bassface, or even last year’s bass tent at Coachella, you can vouch for the uber-serious sound experience only the mighty Pure Filth Soundsystem can provide. According to LA Weekly, “Overheard: Girl standing next to speaker: ‘I feel like my face is getting a massage.’”
