Amon Tobin’s “4 Ton Mantis”

I might have listened to this album about 100 million times in college. It was (and is) perfect music for writing: lyricless, not too obtrusive, but still forward enough to block out other sounds, distractions, and thoughts. And the video is amazing. Stylish. Fitting. Unique (and I don’t use that word lightly). I seem to recall having a tiny 320×240 quicktime of it on an old 18gb hard drive. Ah, halcyon days.

Amon Tobin’s “Calculate”

This is a pretty nice little video for “Calculate” from this year’s ISAM. Though it seems simple, it’s definitely not. Imagining the number of keyframes in this thing’s timeline makes me tired. And uncomfortable.

But I like it.

Amon Tobin’s “Esther’s”

Aaaaannnnnndddddd in a world away from Big Freedia’s hit below comes a new video from Amon Tobin’s 2007 record Foley Room. A little terrifying, a little mysterious, yet still quite beautiful. What is the weird tentacle robot going to do?!
