Amon Tobin, 'Foley Room' (Ninja Tune)

6
Foley Room
Critical Mass
Label: Ninja Tune

by J Niimi

Did 1950s musique concréte composers ever imagine their rarified tape-art would become the next century's pop fodder? On Foley Room, named for the film sound-editing suite where it was assembled, Montreal drum-and-bass eccentric Amon Tobin vigorously assumes the avant-garde mantle, orchestrating field recordings (robots in factories, water dripping) with slithery beat tectonics. The bonus DVD has Tobin vexing the Kronos Quartet (for the cinematic "Bloodstone") and sticking a $5,000 mic into a lion's mouth to record the roar (for "Big Furry Head").
