ESKAMON is the new collaboration project between Amon Tobin (Ninja Tune) & Eskmo (Warp, Planet Mu). “Fine Objects” is the first single by the duo that’s set for release on Eskmo’s own imprint “Ancestor.” Tobin’s history spans 15 years of commerical releases that range across the musical spectrum. Regarded as one of the foremost influencial “experimental” electronic arists of the past decade, he has released numerous singles and seven major studio albums under the mighty London-based Ninja Tune. A rare 10/10 Pitchfork review states “Remarkably intricate and razor sharp compositions...total sonic mastery of each subtle aspect of a work.” MusicOMH.com applauded Tobin's use of melody and texture, adding that he controlled the sounds with the "clarity of a classical orchestrator." His music has been used in various major motion pictures including “The Italian Job” and “21”. Tobin has created the musical score for several independent films critically acclaimed video games such as “Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory” and “inFamous.” Brendan Angelides is a San Francisco based electronic music producer who records and performs live as Eskmo. In the past five years he’s released over a dozen singles and EPs while performing throughout North America and into Europe. In the past two years his multi-genre compositions have been on influential labels like Warp Records and Planet Mu. He's also remixed works by diverse artists such as Bibio, Spor, STS9, and Bar9, to name a few. Bleep.com described his tracks as "Masterfully produced... sophisticated, post-Dilla hip-hop funk.” Hislast single of 2009 entitled "Let Them Sing" on Mu was met with equal praise and described by sites like Boomkat as "[Putting] Eskmo on his own electronic plateau." “Fine Objects” is the result of the pair’s unique take on sonic exploration and the manipulation of field recordings. From the onset, the two went out with a recorder, gathering sounds from around the house, yard and studio. Material recorded out of the studio included sounds from a parking garage elevator, a broken harp and the droning tones from a discarded piano. These were combined with more home-centric sounds to form the central theme to the song. With lumbering alien bass and intentionally dry, off-kilter percussion, “Objects” quickly grew into it’s own symbolic representation of taking “odd pieces” and allowing them to grow into something a bit more “refined and ablaze.” The digital release is set for an April 5th worldwide release date and the pair plans on giving out a free WAV sample pack of all the sounds created for the track. The pack will be available directly from AmonTobin.com. “Fine Objects” (Ancestor, ANC004) Written and produced by Amon Tobin & Brendan Angelides Photo : "la Colline" by Emmanuel Colombani - www.emmanuelcolombani.net ©2010, Ancestor, All rights reserved. - www.Ancestormedia.com - Distributed by Ingrooves Publishing: Just Isn't Music / Ancestor Publishing - ASCAP http://www.eskamon.com
