Nulla di strano che la musica targata Tycho, pur immersa pienamente nella civiltà del digitale, abbia una fortissima componente cinematica: negli anni infatti Hansen ha sviluppato parallelamente all'attività di musicista anche quella di designer (sotto la sigla ISO50) combinando spesso e volentieri le due arti, caratterizzandole entrambe con una visione estetica molto particolare: brillanti colori primari che vengono immersi in malinconie nebbiose e delicate. Vale per i suoi lavori grafici, come modus operandi, ma vale anche e soprattutto per le sue creazioni sonore.
Non è solo questione di lavorare su toni e registri, comunque. Nella musica di Tycho, già col suo album d'esordio del 2004 “Sunrise Projector” (poi rieditato due anni più tardi, aggiungendo ulteriori tracce, col nome “Past Is Prologue”) ma ancora di più con l'attuale “Dive”, è possibile cogliere in filigrana non solo il suo amore per caposaldi dell'elettronica intelligente come i Boards Of Canada ma anche la sua passione, nata già nell'adolescenza, per il prog rock, quello di impronta più onirica e visionaria: “Le mia canzoni sono artigianato del futuro, un artigianato però che ha più da spartire col nostro passato che col nostro presente”. Sospensioni e vertigini spazio-temporali di pura classe.

Tycho is the music project of San Francisco artist and producer Scott Hansen. As Tycho, Hansen blends swirling melodies into vaguely triumphant arcs that crisscross between stuttering beats and vocal samples, creating rolling sonic landscapes that extend into the horizon. Known in the design world as ISO50, Hansen is famed for his bucolic, sun-drenched design style, which serves as a backdrop and mirror for his musical output.

While his formative years were spent listening to everything from Yes to Photek, Scott Hansen didn’t get his hands on an actual guitar or drum machine until he left his native Sacramento for San Francisco in 1995. “Encountering this whole new world at 20 years old was a profound experience,” says Hansen, better known by his musical pseudonym Tycho and as the graphic artist ISO50. “At the time, I was just learning the processes of design and music; both felt very similar, and have flowed back and forth for me ever since.”

As seamless as his two creative outlets have been, nearly a decade passed before the release of Hansen’s first proper Tycho LP, Sunrise Projector (later expanded and reissued under the title Past Is Prologue). And while three striking singles have emerged since then, the sum of all those sepia-toned parts is nowhere near the double-exposed soundscapes of Dive. The product of a prolonged break from IS050’s design work and blog, it pays tribute to Tycho’s prismatic past (the dense, guitar-guided turning points of “Daydream” and “Adrift”) but spends most of its time pointing to the project’s not-so-distant future.

That can mean any number of things, really, from the halcyon hooks and hopeful horizons of “A Walk” to the expansive, wildly expressive tone poetry of the title track, an eight-minute epic that unfolds like a compressed concept album. Or at the very least, a restless vision of prog-rock—one that’s been coated in neon colors and filtered through a thick piece of blotter paper. And then there’s “Elegy,” a spare curtain closer that pairs a vulnerable crescendo with a fitting bridge to future works.
And with that, Dive establishes its position as the most diverse musical statement of Hansen’s multi-medium career; the point where his skills as a performer finally catch up with his vaporized vision of a world that doesn’t belong to any particular time or place.

“Nostalgia is a common thread in my work,” says Hansen, “but this album wasn’t driven by that idea. I see these songs as artifacts from a future which might have more in common with our past than our present.”
