People to Watch in 2017: Jason White

GDUSA starts each year by choosing a group of people to watch who embody the spirit of the creative community. Individuals we have come to know and respect for a combination of talent, leadership, success, newsworthiness and community service.

...Apart from the mind-fucking 3-D aspect, Tobin’s visual spectacle is made so by its mastery of textures.

In their stead are the subtle imperfections of wood on a stack of crates, the grinding gears of a machine pumping in time to the frenetic soundtrack, and the illusion of delicately balanced cubes tumbling downward only to reassemble before our eyes. It’s truly engrossing in its own unique, quirky way...

ISAM 2.0 Wooden Toy

Well I finally had a chance to see Amon Tobin’s iconic ISAM 2.0 show in Chicago at the Congress Theatre last weekend. I had to restrain myself from just jumping in at FOH and bugging anybody about the setup, but there were two pairs of what looked like Barco FLM-HD20′s and Peter Sistrom’s control bridge. Behind all that was the excited crew from Leviathan. The visuals from V Squared Labs and Leviathan didn’t disappoint and the Congress’ killer Nexo line array thumped with authority...

Brazilian dance mastermind Amon Tobin graces the cover of this week's B Side, and Miles Raymer touches on the DJ-producer's concert visuals in a preview of Tobin's Saturday-night show at the Congress Theater: "It consists of stage-filling stacks of cubes and boxes covered with projection-­mapped computer-­generated images that move in time to the sound, like a bigger and far more trippier iTunes visualizer in three dimensions." Tobin needed a lot of help to create this live setup, and he found it in a local production studio called Leviathan...

Amon Tobin, ISAM Live, Melbourne 2012 - Live review, photos

It's difficult to tell you how this "concert" was. At least in a traditional breakdown format. If you've seen any footage of Brazilian producer Amon Tobin's astonishing stage show for ISAM Live then you get the gist -- a partnership with V Squared Labs and Leviathan have birthed an arrangement of cubes lays patchwork atop each other on stage; a module larger than most positioned somewhere near its centre. When the lights go down the movie-like projection starts, for it is more like a movie than a "gig" in the traditional sense...

Vivid Sydney Daily Report #9: Amon Tobin's ISAM, GoodGod Danceteria!

“...That was epic,” says one guy to his friends on the way out. I wish I could be as emphatically awed. There is, however, so much to admire about Tobin’s vision, and the work of production teams V Squared Labs and Leviathan to help realise it. It’ll be fascinating to see where he takes it next. And let’s not forget the unsung heroes of the night: those ushers with the earplugs...

The Sydney Morning Herald, June 1, 2012
Project eclectic electric

...But none of it really tells you the how and what, let alone why, of a project that arose when Tobin found that with ISAM he was writing something ''that couldn't really be performed with musicians because it wasn't made with musicians but also couldn't be DJ-ed because it wasn't dance music''. He had to find a way of ''guiding people through'', enlisting design specialists V Squared Labs and Leviathan...

And it's going to be performed in the most formal, storied room in the city rather than a warehouse or open field...

The matrix of shifting 3D cubes, with Tobin perched in the centre, was developed alongside production teams V Squared Labs and Leviathan. What made ISAM Live particularly astounding was how unexpected it was: an ostensibly ‘experimental’ artist pulling off a big-budget spectacle. We should count ourselves lucky they took the leap. Next month, the whole audio-visual experience is coming to Australia for Vivid Sydney and a standalone show in Melbourne...

Amon Tobin's ISAM merges music, meat, machines in 3D show and creepy hardcover
"...The show isn't about being a big flashy production," said Tobin of the visual component, which was created by V Squared Labs and Leviathan. "It's not giant walls of LEDs constantly flashing meaningless visual content at you until you puke. It's completely unique and actually quite bizarre..."

Amon Tobin’s Big Pile Of Pixels
If there’s one thing we took away from the Tron films— moving past the general excellence of Jeff Bridges and the fact the Daft Punk finally scored a film— it was the production design. Ditto for the Matrix. They both had clearly defined aesthetics that were all about a love for the digital. If you were digging what they did there, there’s a world of abstract computer processed shapes in Amon Tobin‘s new touring setup which explore the spectrum of pixelated patterns and you’re sure to dig it too...

Amon Tobin's ISAM Tour Visuals Take A New Approach To Merging Sound And Stage Design
...But the project goes far beyond the album itself, unfolding into visual interpretations of the ISAM concept, which mixes the genres of psychedelia and science fiction for the album’s tour visuals. The DJ asked Alex Lazarus at Blasthaus to develop a mega structure with 3D effects specifically for ISAM performances. Dozens of white cubes and rectangles form the base for projection mapping that uses animation techniques and video game elements to augment the structure...

Amon Tobin’s ISAM tour will hit Europe and Canada early this summer with some stunning 3D projection mapping by VSquared Labs, Leviathan, Blasthaus and Vita Motus Design.

"...To address everyone's concerns about how the content would look in the finished spots, a detailed pre-vis and animatic we created with the agency was extremely important," Webb said, clarifying that Autodesk Maya was Leviathan's main tool for creating its custom models and animation. "The Museum's collection is very specific and unique, so most of the details had to be created by hand, using references from the actual exhibits. We assembled a fairly large modeling and surfacing team to tackle each detail of every model. The waves, rain and tornado were major challenges, and we assigned separate simulation teams for each piece. Our toolset spans most applications, so it was all pretty seamless..."
