Thanks to my parents and their friends I grew up on bands like Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, et al. and if asked my favorite band of all time now I think I would still have to say Led Zeppelin (after a long internal debate between them and the latter-day Beatles). Of all Zeppelin’s albums I always enjoyed 1973’s Houses of the Holy most. I really love all of their album covers; the imagery they employed is so organic and transcendent. I have an original copy of Led Zeppelin III with the 2 piece cover and rotating artwork, I’ll post that one soon.
There’s a great discussion of the origin of the Houses of the Holy cover art on wikipedia.

Urb Magazine’s 14th annual "Next 100" issue is on shelves now and this year they were kind enough to include me in the list.
"The only thing more beautiful than the mesmerizing design and print work he creates under the ISO50 name might be Scott Hansen’s rich analog signal path. As Tycho, this San Francisco artist has an absolute lock on daydream downtempo, fusing thick, fuzzy beats with lush synths, samples and guitars. Buy the ticket, take the ride. RT – Urb Magazine"
Kind words indeed, much appreciated.
I’ll be speaking at the FITC Toronto Design & Technology Festival on Monday, April 21st, 2008 [view full schedule]. I’ve yet to attend an FITC event but I’ve heard great things so I’m very excited to check it out. I’ll be covering the method and theory behind my work in a talk entitled "ISO50: Blending Analogue & Digital". Hope to see you all out.
I’ll also be doing a live Tycho set with ISO50 visuals at the Drake Hotel in Toronto on April 20th. I’ll be posting more on that as details become available. There’s talk of a set during the FITC festival as well, more info will follow.
