Giz­modo called it “The Con­cert of the Future, Today” and CHART­at­tack said that “it was a live show one might have said could only be cre­ated and per­formed by a cyber­net­ic organ­ism.” where “ground­break­ing mod­el­ing and map­ping tech­niques were used to take the audi­ence at the Met­ro­pol­is on a trip to dozens of worlds. … it felt like one was trans­por­ted into deep space or, altern­ately, inside the Tron grid, a game of Tet­ris, an M.C. Escher paint­ing, the fiery pits of Mordor, an acid-col­oured kal­eido­scope, a Splinter Cell video game…” Wired got straight to the point: “ISAM’s live show looks like a mind­fuck of the highest order” with “little in the way of precedent.”
