Release Notes:

Genius of noise manipulation and uncompromising musical auteur,
Amon Tobin is set to release, "Foley Room", his most conceptually
satisfying and beautiful album to date. After finishing work on
his soundtrack to the video game "Splinter Cell" Tobin decided it
as time to re-think his compositional processes. Having made several
albums from reconstructed vinyl sources it was time to look at what
else could be pulled apart and reconfigured. Amon had been told about
the work of foley artists and this served as an inspiration. A foley
room is where the sound effects are recorded for films. Foley artists
use their imagination and ingenuity to make the right noise for the
situation they are presented with.

With this in mind, Amon and a team of assistants headed out into the
streets with high sensitivity microphones and recorded found sounds
from tigers roaring to cats eating rats, from wasps to falling
chickpeas, kitchen utensils to motorbikes to water dripping from a tap.
Added to this were the sounds of musicians like the Kronos Quartet,
Stefan Schneider and Sarah Pagé, Tobin travelling from foley rooms
in Montreal to San Francisco to Seattle and back as he collected them
(the CD release will be accompanied by a short DVD, "Foley Room: Found
Footage", documenting the recording process). He then took this wealth
of source material and twisted it round into the haunting, muscular
music you can hear throughout this remarkable album.

If a theme runs through "Foley Room" it is what Amon describes as "the
pairing of sounds that share a sonic quality despite being otherwise
unrelated". And beyond this, of course, his belief that source material
is just that – a source, something to be processed, warped and
manipulated until it runs beyond itself. This isn't an avant garde or
deliberately obtuse record, rather a way for Tobin to freshen up his
approach to music whilst tipping his cap to the musique-concrete and
found sound pioneers of the past.

The results are immediately apparent. There seems to be a new aural depth
to the sound of the record, a living looseness despite the almost forensic
way in which the music has been pieced together. In many ways it's as
musical and melodic as anything he has produced. And, as ever with Tobin,
there are moments of spectral oddness as well as those of sheer exhilaration.
Most of all, though, there is a consistency of vision as you are dragged
backward through moods and sensations which encourages you to see the
record not as a collection of "tracks" but as a whole piece. Unique and
compelling, "Foley Room" is set to stand out even amongst the consistently
high quality of Tobin's other output.

Enjoy! :)
