TOM HALL (from Brisbane, Australia)

Tom Hall is a media artist based in Brisbane, Australia.

Hall's eclectic works flourish by utilising a variety of mediums, each that reflect on his varied background and interests. With a strong focus on elements of the 'everyday' Hall's practice involves considered explorations into place, space and time. Drawing inspiration from countless spaces, Hall focuses on using multiple approaches to engage and recontextualise them to the public.

Hall’s practice centres on experimentation with interest and focus on the ‘everyday’ that stems from time growing up as a child in rural isolation in Tasmania, a place Hall still feels very attached. This interest stemmed from the need to reinvent his surrounds to avoid becoming bored as he discovered and re-discovered the same surroundings. It would seem that this isolation gave Hall an enhanced ability to see and isolate viscerally appealing qualities within nature and man-made environment that others often pass by without acknowledgement.

In a live performance context Hall projects multi-channel video pieces drawing from a data base of found footage, composing and layering in real-time, this imagery is at times linked directly and indirectly to the sound, that Hall is also producing in realtime, through amplitude control. The outcome of this is a large, immersive performance that is viscerally enticing, engaging and results in the creation of hyper environment that represents the vast areas, places and music that Hall finds inspiring.

In the studio, Hall takes his interest in a variety of music qualities and uses these to combine, process and manipulate found sound and instrument experimentation. These processes involves the combination of computer based processing (Ableton Live, Max/Msp) and analog based manipulation with extensive hardware configurations, the pieces created during these processes are then composed linearly in Hall's preferred DAW or further manipulated using 'organic' procedures Hall has developed over years of experimentation. This organic manipulation sees Hall creating Reverb Chambers from old water tanks and polycarbonate bottles, replaying composition in environments they originated from and tape manipulation.

Hall has presented live performances, exhibitions and installations extensively both in Australia and abroad in the past 5 years throughout Japan, UK, Europe and America. Hall has worked, collaborated and played along side artists such as Steinbruchel, Tim Hecker, Jason Khan, Lawrence English, Takashi Kojima, Haco, Samm Bennet, Skist, Oren Ambarchi, Christoper Willits and Scott Arford.
