Hotel Neon is the Philadelphia-based trio of Michael Tasselmyer, Andrew Tasselmyer, and Steven Kemner. Together they create immersive and atmospheric soundscapes aided by projected film and images.
Known for its heavy emphasis on enveloping walls of sound, Hotel Neon also injects subtle melody and improvisation to create a rich musical experience, one that rewards any level of listener scrutiny. Since forming in early 2013, the group has released four full-length albums through the Home Normal, Fluid Audio, and ARCHIVES labels.
Hotel Neon has toured extensively throughout the U.S.A. and collaborated with a global roster of audio and visual artists. At home in any kind of listening environment, Hotel Neon has presented its unique style of dense, layered drone to a wide range of audiences and varied settings, including basements, radio studios, and cavernous cathedrals alike.
