20 years of experimental music collaboration

Tapegerm is a pool of source audio started as projects which artists inject into new work. The sounds germinate via new compositions and new collections. A source can spread and be carried by 100's of works mutating in endless forms. Currently there are 566 collaboration projects dropped into the pool by 53 artists, labels and publishers.
To get started, create an account, pick a project or game a random set of sources then create something new. Upload your work and link your credits so your germ spreads throughout the site. If you want to contribute to the pool, let us know in the Tapegerm group on Facebook.

Glad you enjoyed the show, Mr. Mime! Many thanks for sharing the positive words with your readers too. I know this album would not be the way it is without Tapegerm, and I offer you my sincerest gratitude and respect for keeping this site alive! May 2017 bring you and the rest of us many creative moments.
