On the Road with TYCHO

At first glance, the life of a touring musician can seem wildly glamorous: Late nights, different cities, fans that adore you…But look a little deeper and you’ll see that the reality of life on the road is very much to the contrary. Though there are good times to be had, the majority of a touring musician’s life is spent in transition. Transition from city to city, venue to venue, and hotel to hotel.

We teamed up with FILTER Magazine and went on tour with San Francisco audio/visual artist Tycho, to capture this grueling experience. We outfitted Tycho with the best of our waterproof jackets as well as new products that needed field testing.

The Tycho x Mission Workshop x FILTER Magazine tour is culminating on November 29th in Tycho and Mission Workshops hometown of San Francisco with a performance at The Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. This will be the last tour stop for Tycho before the release of his new LP next spring. Check out his early release single on ISO 50
