Tycho is an superb musician and artist. His ambient-trip-hop-electroinca music is beyond words. Sounds and bleeps blend and melt into each other until it builds into a frantic crescendo. Absolutely perfect soundtrack for late-night bike rides or quiet reading sessions. I've turned quite a few friends onto this wonderful sound, it's nice to have a connotation with something so positive and moving.
When he's not setting the mood with his music, his alter-ego ISO50 creates prints/shirts/artwork that reflects his sound: the two platforms flow together perfectly. I've purchased two of his prints and they are the center piece for my room. The frame company I brought it to nearly flipped when they saw his work. I came back with his CD and they agreed: it fits.
Three years after his last full-length and two years after his last EP, Tycho his back with a new 12". Only 1000 copies will be made and the first 50 will be signed and numbered. Pre-order it.
