Tom Hall is an Australian electronic audio-visual artist, who resides in Lake Arrowhead, California.

Hall's work is characterized by field recordings, synthesizers, computer software processing, and improvisation, which generates a large range of possible sounds including; melodic rhythms, ambient textures, and drone.

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

Hall focuses on and uses sound as a means to translate feelings, create hybrid environments and notions of journey. Stylistically these outcomes vary from noise-orientated improvisation to structured drone, melody, and rhythm.
