今时今日之你如果自认喜欢电子，环境音乐与后摇，那么TYCHO绝对是不容错过的天籁之声。Tycho一词原义指月球南半部的陨石坑，名取自丹麦天文学家Tycho Brahe。但在旧金山设计师、视听影像多位一体的电子乐制作人Scott Hansen的掌控下，则是一支由个人的音乐计划演变为活力四射充满幻想，风格极为独特的现场表演乐队。
而2011年转至电音厂牌Ghostly International后，TYCHO的作品及音乐开始向完整丰满的形象化现场表演转变。传统贝斯和吉他的引入以及吉他手Zac Brown和鼓手Rory O’Connor在创作和演奏上的贡献，使TYCHO的音乐从静谧前卫的带有迷幻氛围的电子乐慢慢向充满活力和旋律的电子后摇转变。新专辑《Awake》则被Scott Hansen称为真正的TYCHO音乐作品，完整的现场表演阵容也开创了TYCHO多年由制作到现场表演进化的新篇章。
本次TYCHO乐队京沪港巡演嘉宾由近年来异军突起，斩获台湾金音奖最佳电子乐队的宝岛新人——棋盘上的空格（Empty Space On a Chessboard）担任。
ELECTRO ARTIST TYCHO ON “AWAKE” CHINA TOUR
Guest: EMPTY SPACE ON A CHESSBOARD
For nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, a San Francisco, California based ambient music artist and producer, also known as ISO50 for his photographic and design works. With the release of Awake – his second LP for Ghostly International – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Reaching an entire new realm of sonic possibilities this time out, Awake is situated in the present, reaching Hansen’s vision of Tycho like never before. “This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record.”
It was around 2008 that URB magazine noted Tycho as one of the Next 100 artists to watch, and Hansen continued to release singles and experiment with more live instrumentation. In 2011, his meticulous process saw the release of Dive, his debut full-length for Ghostly International. Tranquil, nostalgic and melodic, the record established him beyond the realm of IDM and ambient.
Following the release of Dive, Tycho toured extensively accompanied by a full band on stage, with his sound coalescing into a percussive, organic whole. Zac Brown (guitars, bass) continued to join Scott on the road, but it was the particular addition of Rory O’Connor’s live drumming that ultimately sent Hansen back to the studio with a more precise vision for what the future of what Tycho could be. “After the tour, I decided that I wanted to capture the more energetic, driven sound of the live show on the next album,” Hansen recalls. Bringing musicians into Tycho’s creative process was a step towards expanding his own songwriting and advancing the project beyond its current incarnation.
PK Music is thrilled to present TYCHO, one of electronic music’s most captivating acts, live in Shanghai on January 17th 2015 at MAO Livehouse and Beijing on January 20th 2015 at Yugong Yishan Livehouse. Originally a solo project, Tycho’s debut appearance in Asia will be a full band performance, featuring guitarist/bassist Zac Brown and live percussionist Rory O’Connor. As Tycho, Scott 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. « 收起
