This is a record release show for Hotel Neon, who will be sharing their 5th full length album entitled "Vanishing Forms."
Hotel Neon is the Philadelphia-based trio of Michael Tasselmyer, Andrew Tasselmyer, and Steven Kemner. Together they create music to get lost in: atmospheric, hazy guitar and electronics, paired with meticulously designed visual projections that combine for an immersive audio/visual experience. Since forming in early 2013, the group has released 5 full-length albums, including their newest LP "Vanishing Forms" set for release in May 2019. Hotel Neon has toured and collaborated with the likes of Benoit Pioulard, Loscil, The Sight Below, and Marcus Fischer, filling a variety of performance spaces from galleries to cathedrals with their densely layered walls of sound.
Lowercase Noises is an ambient instrumental project by New Mexico-based composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Andy Othling. Early experiments with rudimentary recording equipment and a handful of effects pedals eventually led to the release of Othling's first major work, the 2009 full-length release Seafront. His mix of ambient guitar work, electronica, and post-rock elements was further expanded on a trio of 2010 releases: Carry Us All Away, Ambient Songs, and Marshall, the latter of which was written for his newborn son. Over the next few years, Othling continued to develop new works, eventually returning in 2014 with This Is for Our Sins, a spacious blend of sweeping post-rock and gentle organic soundscapes. Like his earlier releases, it was self-produced and self-released. 2017's The Swiss Illness featured a lusher ambient sound.
Slow Meadow is piano-centered ambient compositions from multi-instrumentalist Matt Kidd. After working as a touring / session musician since the early 2000s, Matt took a serious interest in creating music focused less on performance and more on inner experience. Slow Meadow’s releases have been celebrated by NPR, The New York Observer, and the syndicated radio show, Echoes.
