World-renowned electronica artist and DJ Amon Tobin wowed thousands of fans with his innovative, shape-shifting 3D art installation on his latest international tour, ISAM Live. Barco supplied its FLM HD20 projectors to create this spectacular visual journey, illuminating the 25' x 14' x 8' multi-dimensional centerpiece while the artist controlled the electronic music show from within the structure.
Combining 3D projection mapping and generative/audio reactive real-time and pre-rendered elements, the producers used Barco's FLM HD20 projectors to display the kaleidoscope of visual elements in concert with Tobin's music. The artist recently described the integration of projection mapping and music as a “reverse score,” alluding to the cinematic parallels he sought to achieve in creating the show.
The dynamic stage featured the joint efforts of V Squared Labs founder Vello Virkhaus, who created the visual imagery and projection mapping effects; Alex Lazarus of blasthaus serving as executive producer; and Heather Shaw, CEO of Vita Motus Design Studio, who conceptualized and created the stage as production and set designer.
The sold-out worldwide tour concluded in Eindhoven, Netherlands on November 26, 2011 with a special performance officially wrapping ISAM Live on New Year's Eve in San Francisco.
