Halls Of The Machine (HOTM) is an atmospheric-post-rock trio featuring Mike Graff (guitars), Michael Jerome (drums and percussion), and Van Eric Martin (keyboards and production).
Specializing in instrumental music, the trio directs its attention toward writing and producing music for film projects, and creating soundscapes for art-installations.
Standout tracks such as “Satie II” and “Tension” reflect Graff’s love of works by composer Erik Satie, while opening cut, “Shadows on the Moon” recalls the spacey guitar stylings of early Police. “This is something that I escape with” says Jerome of Lovers and Sleepers. “I turn everything off and enter a world of pure instrumentation.”
