American ambient music artist Scott Hansen, professionally known as Tycho, creates some of the most incredible melodies and smooth sounds in the ambient music industry. Unlike other musicians that, over time, seem to lose momentum, creativity and inspiration, Scott is the complete opposite, every album seemingly better than the last. His latest album, Awake, is out-of-this-world amazing from beginning to end, making you feel as free as a bird! NPR Music, a well-respected editorial for discovering music, had the following to say about the album:
Awake humbly suggests itself as the soundtrack to a sunbaked road trip, capturing the inexplicable nostalgia you feel imagining a new life in a new town glimpsed from the highway. Transitions within and between individual tracks take place so smoothly they register mostly as changes in atmospheric pressure rather than plot points.
Besides producing music, Scott is also a talented artist and designer and creates his own album artwork under the name ISO50.
It doesn’t get any more unique and inspiring than this. Phenomenal work.
