New Amon Tobin Website




New Amon Tobin Website

There are run-of-the-mill artist websites where nothing ever changes and flash looks disguise lack of content. That's around 90% of them accounted for. Then there are those few where you get stuff you're not getting anywhere else.

Once a month for the next six months, Amon Tobin will be releasing one exclusive track (not previously released on any album) made available for sale directly through his web site at amontobin.com. But not only is there exclusive material, there's the chance to generate your own exclusive material. Site users are being invited to submit videos for these songs for compilation on an eventual DVD release.

Tobin's web site already features a community element. The Fans' Videos section of the site provides a platform for people to submit their own films for his tracks. Tobin's music is known for being cinematic and providing a perfect accompaniment to moving pictures (as evidenced in his score of films such as "Taxidermia" and games such as "Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory"). You only have to look at the list of his scored and licensed works (also on the site, in the Media section) to see that. Amon Tobin has decided to embrace this marriage of music and image and see what results are forthcoming.

Don't get us wrong, though - Tobin's site has enough bells and whistles to keep any midget-attention span satisfied. Check out the game that's prominently featured - through a 360 degree search and a series of clicks, you can unlock the creatures that live within the site to witness a unique demonstration of 3D animation in synch with Amon's scores. Set up the right speakers and note that the whole experience is in surround sound.

In addition to the exclusive tracks in the coming months, Tobin will be offering a digital release of his soundtrack to "Taxidermia", live mixes, ringtones and ringbacks, as well as new designs for t-shirts, hats, posters, desktops, CDs and vinyl.

Stop reading, log on, enjoy.
