Tycho Brings a Sunny Disposition to Webster Hall on Saturday

July 12th, 2012

Scott Hansen is a man of many talents—and of several names. Under the moniker ISO50, he’s a graphic designer well known for his pastoral, sunny style. This serves him well, providing eye-opening backdrops when, using synths and sampled live instrumentation, he makes dreamy music as Tycho. “I want the music to be a soundtrack to a visual experience where both the audio and the visual aspects of the live show are equally important to the audience,” he says. The San Francisco–based producer and musician uses swirling melodies along with halting beats and sampled vocals to paint a rolling sonic picture. Last year’s Dive, earned Tycho (above, doing “A Walk” on KCRW FM) comparisons to M83 and Neon Indian. Find out why when he plays Webster Hall on Saturday.
