Scott Hansen (born 1976), professionally known as Tycho, is an American ambient music artist and producer from San Francisco, California, who is known as ISO50 for his photographic and design works. Tycho is currently signed to, and has released under, Ghostly International, but has also released music on Merck Records and Gammaphone Records. His song, "Dictaphone's Lament", was used as the track on a music video entitled "Live Life to the Fullest", which was made by and featured on the action cartoon block Toonami. Additionally, his song "Cascade" (originally made for an Adult Swim/Ghostly International compilation called Ghostly Swim) was played during the final moments of the original 11-year run of Toonami in 2008.
Scott Hansen's music project Tycho is influenced and has been compared to artists such as DJ Shadow, Ulrich Schnauss, and the Scottish electronic music duo, Boards of Canada. His music captures the sound of 1970s analog media while remaining both progressive and futuristic. Themes of nostalgia, longing, childhood and the natural world are interspersed throughout Tycho's work. Brief interludes or vignettes also feature in Tycho's earlier work. In the Past if Prologue, excerpts from broadcasts accompanied by atmospherics were selected and included by Hansen to capture a specific moment or mood. Overall, the mixture of electronic synths, live instrumentation, and old school sound clips creates a very relatable, organic sound.
