Who's Amon Tobin?
Brazil-born Amon Tobin spent his formative years in the UK. He came up through the breakdancing and hip-hop scenes of the 80s, and the drum & bass and jungle scenes of the 90s, before establishing a sound and a style that was singularly his own. For the next several years, he pushed the boundaries of found sound to the limits on acclaimed albums such as Bricolage, Permutation, Supermodified, and Out From Out Where, and pushed other compositional tactics forward in albums like Foley Room and ISAM. Tobin also produced several original movie and video game scores, such as the blockbuster game Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and created numerous dancefloor-oriented singles and albums under the Two Fingers alias.
The depth and scope of Amon Tobin's work have been a major inspiration to many. He achieved respect among artists within and outside electronic music. He established a reputation for musical ingenuity unconfined by genre and still remains to this day, one of the most visionary electronic artists of his generation.
