Electronic music producer Tycho has announced his intentions to take his audiovisual work into the NFT sphere. The artist, real name Scott Hansen, is also a graphic designer and has created album covers, posters, and other artworks under the ISO50 moniker.

I feel so fortunate that such a passionate and supportive community has grown up around Tycho so I’m beyond excited to see what we can create here together.”
