Secret Sounds Asia are thrilled to present TYCHO, one of electronic music's most captivating acts, live in Singapore on 15 January 2015 at Victoria Theatre.

Hailing from San Francisco, California, Tycho is best known as the musical alias of artist, producer and designer Scott Hansen. Originally a solo project, Tycho's debut appearance in Singapore will be a full band performance, featuring guitarist/bassist Zac Brown and live percussionist Rory O'Connor.

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.
