Bricolage is a 1997 album by the Brazilian electronic music artist Amon Tobin. It was Tobin's second album, the first released under his own name, and his first on the Ninja Tune label. The album was a departure from his first album, Adventures in Foam (as Cujo), incorporating a heavier blend of jazz melodies and intense jungle rhythms. The album was followed by Permutation in 1998.

The album art for Bricolage depicts part of Alexander Liberman's Olympic Iliad sculpture, located at the base of the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

Reception[edit]

Ryan Schreiber of Pitchfork Media gave Bricolage a maximum rating of 10/10, praising Amon Tobin for the way he produced an album of old jazz music with modern technology, such as samplers and electric keyboards.[2] Sean Cooper of AllMusic stated that the album was consistently engaging and blurred the distinction between jungle and jazz.[1]
