This last weekend Tycho (aka Scott Hansen/ISO50) came to Colorado for three consecutive shows in Ft. Collins, Denver, and Colorado Springs. I was fortunate enough to catch the first two, which were both unique and complimented each other in a great way. The Ft. Collins gig was at the Aggie, of course, a grungy little venue with an incredibly intimate atmosphere. My good friend and fellow Tycho enthusiast, Leo, and I were front and center. We had prepared the night before by listening to Tycho’s “Dive” on vinyl, which is a visceral experience I recommend to anyone.

The Denver show was particularly special for me because I had 12 of my closest friends there seeing Tycho for the first time. It was at the Summit Music Hall, which is a new venue with huge sound a great vibe to it. I also got special access to take some photos in the balcony that was blocked off, but the lighting and motion was tough to capture at times with my entry-level SLR. It felt plain wrong to shoot ISO50 at ISO800, but it was a necessary adjustment.

Scott has recently been working with cinematographer Charles Bergquist to create new visuals for the Tycho summer tour, and they were absolutely gorgeous. Most of them incorporated super-slow-motion shots of surfing, waves crashing, or beautiful women walking on the beach. The images are filtered and matched with the tempo, with some ISO50 graphics superimposed. It was such a cool experience, I wish I could capture the whole effect for you but these videos will give you some idea.

Here’s a reel of high-speed footage from Charles Bergquist, some of which is used in the Tycho visuals:
