WORDS

FROM

SCOTT

THE STORY

INTERVIEW /

FILTER

BY

BREANNA

MURPHY

MAGAZINE

OVER THE PAST DECADE OR MORE, TWO ARTISTIC SIDES OF SCOTT HANSEN HAVE BEEN OPERATING IN A STATE OF EVOLUTIONARY CONVERGENCE. AS THE MUSICAL PROJECT, TYCHO, HANSEN CRAFTS CINEMATIC LANDSCAPES UTILIZING A MIXTURE OF

LIVE

INSTRUMENTATION

AND

ELECTRONICS

THAT ECHO AND RESONATE ACROSS OPEN, BEAUTIFUL

SPACES,

SOUNDTRACKING

INTERSTELLAR

ROADTRIPS AS EASILY AS DEEP-SEA DIVING. FOR

ITS

LATEST

ALBUM,

AWAKE,

TYCHO

PLE AND TO CREATE MORE OF A “BAND RECORD.” HAS

MATURED PAST ITS BEGINNINGS AS A ONE-MAN BAND UTILIZING SYNTHESIZERS AND DRUM MACHINES

TO

FULL

LIVE

INSTRUMENTATION

BY

BASS PLAYER, ZAC BROWN, AND DRUMMER, RORY O’CONNOR, WITH WHOM HANSEN HAS PERFORMED OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS. UNLIKE ITS PREVIOUS

RECORDS,

THE

RECORDING

OF

TYCHO’S

NEW LP, AWAKE, WAS COLLABORATIVE BETWEEN THE THREE MUSICIANS, WITH SESSIONS OCCURRING IN LAKE TAHOE, SANTA CRUZ AND SAN FRANCISCO.

I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO WORK WITH OTHER PEOTHAT’S WHAT [AWAKE] IS. WHEN I HEAR THIS RECORD, I HEAR THE THING THAT I HAD ENVISIONED

ALL

THESE

YEARS;

I

JUST

REALLY

WASN’T ABLE TO DO IT [BEFORE]. WE SPENT TONS OF TIME ON ARRANGEMENT AND THINKING ABOUT WHAT MADE SENSE FOR THE ALBUM AS A WHOLE. THAT WAS ONE OF THE THINGS AT THE END THAT STRUCK ME THE MOST ABOUT IT; THAT [AWAKE]

FEELS

LIKE

THIS

COHESIVE

RECORD

WHERE WE ACCOMPLISHED WHAT WE SET OUT TO DO AS FAR AS THE CONCEPT, AS OPPOSED TO FINDING OUR WAY AS WE WENT. SO [IN THE PAST], I MADE THESE OTHER SONGS THAT WERE FINDING MY WAY AROUND THAT, BUT WITH THIS, I THINK WE REALLY GOT TO THE CENTER OF IT AND THAT IS REALLY FULFILLING.

THE

STORY

(

CONT.)

VISUAL ARTIST BEFORE HE BECAME A MUSICIAN, HANSEN ATTENDED THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO AND PAID THE BILLS WORKING IN WEB AND GRAPHIC DESIGN. “PURELY THROUGH ACCESSIBILITY, ART CAME NATURALLY. I GUESS I ALWAYS THOUGHT

OF

MUSIC

AS

A

THING

THAT

HAS

A

HIGH BARRIER TO ENTRY — YOU NEEDED AN EXPENSIVE INSTRUMENT AND TO KNOW HOW TO PLAY — AND [WITH] A PEN AND INK, YOU COULD JUST SIT D O W N A N D S T A R T D R A W I N G . LI KE THE MUSIC B ENEATH THE COVERS, HANSEN’S A R T I S M U L T I L A Y ERED, VIBRANT AND UNIVERSAL; TRANSPORTING ITS AUDIENCE TO PLACES VAGUELY FAMILIAR YET THOROUGHLY OTHERWORLDLY. “TO

A

CERTAIN

EXTENT,

SOME

IDEA THAT I’VE BEEN GOING FOR FOR A LONG TIME. THAT’S AN OLD THING IN DESIGN, THAT AS GRAPHIC DESIGNERS AGE, THEY TEND TOWARD

OF

THE

FIRST

MUSIC I PUT TOGETHER WAS MORE JUST TO HAVE A REASON TO DESIGN SOMETHING. IT WENT HAND IN HAND.” BUT [AWAKE] IS MORE ABOUT A VERY SPECIFIC IDEA. THE WAY THOSE COLORS FIT TOGETHER AND THE PROPORTION OF EACH TO EACH OTHER, AND THERE’S EIGHT OF THEM, ONE FOR EACH SONG.

THE WAY IT LOOKS, TO ME, ENCAPSULATES THIS

MINIMALISM, AND I THINK IT’S BECAUSE YOU LEARN SLOWLY HOW TO EXPRESS YOURSELF MORE EFFICIENTLY

AND,

AS

A

RESULT,

YOUR

WORK

IS GOING TO BECOME WHAT OUTSIDE OBSERVERS WOULD CONSIDER “MINIMAL.” AND YET, DESPITE THEIR DIFFERENCES, THE BINARY WORLDS OF ISO50 AND TYCHO COALESCE TOGETHER ORGANICALLY,

INTERSECTING

AND

INTERACTING

FROM THEIR INDIVIDUAL ORBITS, WITH HANSEN ALW A Y S AT THE CENTER, CRAFTING THE STRIKI N G VISUALS THAT ACCOMPANY HIS SOUNDSCAPING ODYSSEYS. TYCHO // MISSION WORKSHOP

FOR

THIS IMAGINARY PLACE THAT ENCOMPASSES ALL THAT SPACE. LIKE A REGIONAL FLAG FOR WHAT THOSE

ME,

VISUALLY,

AND

THE WAY THAT YOU FEEL WHEN YOU’RE THERE. THAT’S WHAT THIS ALBUM IS ABOUT FOR ME: TRYING TO EXPRESS THAT IDEA, THE WAY THAT THOSE PLACES FEEL TO ME IN MUSIC.
