Advancing far beyond his sound-manipulation past, Amon Tobin has created an experimental masterpiece of cinematic proportions. Foley Room (the space where sound effects are recorded for films) sequences source material (wasps buzzing, tigers roaring, chickpeas falling) and then distorts and manipulates it into epic piano-driven scores. Tobin's strength as a composer is best illustrated on the track "Straight Psyche," a drone-heavy Krautrocker that moves from arpeggio guitars through densely reverberated drums and into schizophrenic vocal whispers-all while keeping a loose groove that rekindles the trippiest moments of Can.
