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.
Mission Workshop and FILTER Magazine went on tour with San Francisco audio/visual artist Tycho, to capture this consuming experience. In an effort to make the travels more tolerable, we outfitted Tycho with full sets of bags and apparel for each of the band members. The documentation of the travel between the shows and snapshots Tycho’s live performance captured just prior to the 2014 Awake tour, became a photo collection we call, Lucid.
