Tycho Poster + Tickets Giveaway

Posted by Scott

Tycho Live @ The Independent, SF - April 7th, 2011
The Tycho San Francisco show is fast approaching and we’ve got some tickets and posters to give away. The first two winners picked will get a copy of the ISO50 Studio Edition print from the show along with two tickets. One runner-up will get two tickets.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post with a valid email address so that we can contact you. Please specify whether you can make it to the show or not, if not we’ll pass the tickets on to someone who will be in town for the show. Winners will be chosen Monday, April 3rd.

On a side note, I’ve completely re-worked the live show — stripped everything down and started from scratch including the visuals. I’ll also be playing most of the (now almost completed) new album. This should be an interesting one.

Tycho Live In San Francisco 4/7

Posted by Scott

I’ll be playing a live Tycho set at The Independent here in San Francisco on April 7th for the SOMA FM 11th Anniversary Party. SOMA FM is a listener-supported internet radio station based here in San Francisco, have a listen here.

This show will be with the entire live band and we’ll be running through a lot of new material from the upcoming album (which, incidentally, is very near completion; hoping to have it wrapped up by the time of the show). We’ve been working a lot on evolving the live set and the visuals so I’m excited that we’ll be bringing all the new elements together for the first time at The Independent, which just happens to be my favorite venue in the city.

I hope to see you out there.

Doors: 7:30 pm / Show: 8:00 pm
$18.00 – $20.00 – Tickets

The show posters will be available at the show, along with other Tycho/ISO50 shirts/posters.

Casino Versus Japan x ISO50

Posted by Scott

I’ll be doing visuals for Casino Versus Japan when he plays with Deerhunter and Real Estate this Saturday here in San Francisco. We’ve done this once before, at LPR in NYC. Should be a great night, see you out there.
10.30 – Deerhunter, Casino Versus Japan (w/ ISO50), Real Estate
@ Slim’s

And to answer Healthcare’s question in the comments, for the visuals I’m running the following:
– Macbook Pro
VDMX (modular live video software environment)
– OS X network MIDI protocol for tempo sync with Ableton Live
Akai MPD18 (might start using Novation Launchpad though, if I can get it to work with VDMX)

Here’s an pretty outdated discussion of the visuals setup. A lot has changed, but the core app (VDMX) is pretty much the same.

Tycho Live Photos

I just got back in from Toronto which was the last stop on the short Tycho tour we just did (I was joined by Dusty Brown and Zac Brown for the live sets). I just wanted to thank everyone so much for having us, we had a great time playing for you and couldn’t have asked for a better vibe. Our very own contributing writer Shelby White was on hand at the Seattle show to shoot with his 1D MK2. As you can see (above) the results were beautiful, he really captured the feel of the lighting that night. And that last one of Dusty is amazing!

I’m going to take a break from shows for a little bit here while I tie up some loose ends on the music front, but we’ll be hitting the road again — and making it to a lot more cities — once the album comes out and we have time for a proper tour.
