With a vast change to the Brooks Center performance landscape and as a special presentation geared toward our college students, Clemson welcomes electronic artist Amon Tobin on his ISAM Live 2.0 tour. The show will be Wednesday, September 19 at 8 pm at the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts at Clemson University.
Since Tobinís emergence in the mid 1990s on the electronic music scene, the depth and scope of his work has had a far-reaching influence, garnering respect among producers and artists both within and outside of the genre. His album Adventures in Foam paved the way for an entire generation of electronic productions and has since ushered in seven critically acclaimed albums under his own name on the prodigious Ninja Tune label.
Over his fifteen-year-long career, Tobin has established a reputation for musical ingenuity that is in no way hemmed in by specific genre. He remains one of the most visionary electronic artists of this generation.
Performing arts student Chris Tollack, who also serves as Production Director for WSBF-FM Clemson, is thrilled at Tobinís tour stop in Clemson. "It's very exciting for Upstate South Carolina to have such a forward-thinking international musician presented at The Brooks Center,Ē said Tollack. ďBy marrying visual and audio components, Amon Tobin challenges traditional notions of artistic expression and performance. ISAM 2.0 is indicative of the vitality of alternative culture and the expanding definition of music."
ISAM Live 2.0 picks up where Tobin left off at the end of 2011 and promises even more of an immersive experience. It features a new ISAM construction, enhanced with audio and visual elements to take the audienceís musical journey to the next level. New music will be revealed from his beat-oriented alias in celebration of the highly anticipated sophomore album due this fall, and part of the new content will be composed of forthcoming Two Fingers material.
