Hotel Neon is the Philadelphia-based trio of Michael Tasselmyer, Andrew Tasselmyer, and Steven Kemner. Together they create music to get lost in: atmospheric washes of 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” released in April 2019 through Spanish ambient imprint Archives. 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.
“Hotel Neon’s music crosses over into cinematic terrain, feeling at once epic and incredibly intimate…The textures have meat on their bones, becoming massive, intangible structures, but having a vulnerability at their core.” -Fluid Radio
“Theirs is a bracing sound that is as icy as it is graceful. It has the symphonic hollow of Sigur Rós and all the depth of Ben Frost or Harold Budd.” -Toneshift
“…clearly attuned to the sonorous subtleties of their music, as evidenced by the cavernous reverberations…Hotel Neon’s focus is enveloping atmosphere and sonic density…” -Textura
