Simon Scott is a sound ecologist and composer from England. His albums ‘Soundings’ (Touch), ‘Insomni’ (Ash International) and ‘Below Sea Level’ (12k) explore the creative process of actively listening, the implications of recording the natural world using technology and the manipulation of natural sounds used for musical composition (Field Recording). He plays the drums in UK band Slowdive, runs his SPS mastering studio from his Cambridge home and has also collaborated with artists Fennesz, Philip Jeck and Clair M Singer (Spire), Taylor Deupree and Marcus Fischer (Between), The Sight Below, Mike Weis, Nils Frahm and James Blackshaw.
Marcus Fischer is a first generation American musician + interdisciplinary artist based in Portland, Oregon. His work typically centers around memory, geography + the manipulation of physical audio recording mediums. Slowly unfolding melodies and warm tape saturated drones have become a trademark of his recordings + live performances alike. These sounds have found their way into multimedia installations, short films, and even into the award winning public radio program Radiolab.
Fischer has released a number of recordings on the widely respected 12k label including his photographic + sonic collaborations with label founder Taylor Deupree. In 2017 Marcus Fischer was an artist in residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation / Rauschenberg Residency where he completed 'Loss', his most recent solo album (released September, 2017). Two of his sound works will be on view the 2019 Whitney Biennial from May 17th-Sept 22nd.
Fischer performs solo, in collaborations, and as a member of unrecognizable now and wild card. more information at: mapmap.ch
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.
