Electronic music pioneer Amon Tobin will release his first album in 8 years!

Brazilian-conceived craftsman Amon Tobin began off under the pen name Cujo in the mid-1990s, at that point living in the UK. His music has been used in numerous major motion pictures including The Italian Job and 21. Tobin has created songs for several independent films, including the 2006 Hungarian film Taxidermia, and had his music used in other independent films, including the 2002 Cannes Palme d’Or nominated Divine Intervention.

A selection of his tracks were featured in  Toonami and in the 2005 anime IGPX, he produced the musical scores to critically acclaimed video games like Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory by Ubisoft in 2005, and Sucker Punch’s Infamous in 2009.

Tobin has been genuinely peaceful in the years following the arrival of his 2011 full-length album ISAM. The album included”female” vocals made from his own processed voice!

Stage Presence As a Performer

The only performance that makes it, that makes it all the way is the one that achieves madness.
― Mick Jagger

Don’t worry, you don’t actually have to achieve madness while performing, but it does help to have a strong stage presence. Every performer wants to be able to woo an audience. Performers that have a certain charm and charisma can draw an audience in, and fully command their attention.
