Amon Tobin – ISAM


ISAM (Invented Sounds Applied to Music) is the seventh full-length studio album by Brazilian electronic musician Amon Tobin. This album marks a significant evolution in Amon Tobin’s sound due to the absence of vinyl samples and trademark jazz-oriented breaks. As with 2007’s Foley Room, a prominent element of the sound is heavily processed field recordings obtained from a variety of unexpected sources. However ISAM goes a step further in that it features a much more unorthodox palette of sounds than before, with these sounds being arranged in close, intricately edited patterns.
