The New York Times is well known for their interactive features — infographics that bring complex subjects and statistics to life — everything from “The Evacuation Zones Around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant” to “A Century of Meat Consumption”.

Last night, at The Vogue Theatre’s sold-out show, I witnessed an enthralling visual performance by electronic musician Amon Tobin. Tobin has been revolutionizing electronic music since his signing with Ninja Tune in 1996. My favorite album was one he created entirely from field recordings in 2007 called, Foley Room. That is until I heard ISAM and seeing Amon Tobin’s performance last night and hearing the material live has sealed the deal.
