Foley artists are a mysterious breed who use their closely guarded skills to simulate sounds for films. When a bone breaks onscreen, someone is probably breaking a piece of celery offscreen. Experimental breakbeat technician Amon Tobin has built his career on sampling records, but for this release he uses microphones and human performers, including a variety of foley artists. This set-up and background is a bit misleading; Foley Room is not Tobin at his most experimental and tough to digest. Instead, much of it sounds like it could have been played by humans using traditional instruments. Any relation to sound effects is pretty much incidental, which is probably for the best since it wasn't that great of a concept to begin with.
