Eighty Five 05:27/192k

The dream for this piece visited my subconscious on the night of September 14th, 2011. Credits: Open Loops by Blind Mime, Coruscate, Grunt, The Other Mind, and resonan. C. Goff III: Korg DS-8 Synthesizer, Korg R3 Vocoder Synthesizer, Midisoft Midi Composing Tool, Voice, Bass Ocarina, Deer Call. Genre: Traditional. Created: 22 Apr 2014 10:40 PM.

When I Lose Collaboration 04:56/128k
The last bit of requested spoken word from JSG to ZM, and it was a long time coming. More proof that JSG is a timeless presence among us mortals. Credits: spoken word by Jeremy Gluck, various sound FX from my private stash of found sound. Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 14 Apr 2014 11:39 PM. Plays: 6 -->please comment (1).

Tank Inside Train Space 06:54/256k
After checking out The Collapse of Civilization I was inspired to revisit Project-51 and rather than adding my own material I used some Hal McGee collaboration audio material that I found I had in a zip file on my pc. Once inside the planet I tightened everything to the core, re-aligned the 12 jumper segments and added a new code to the security console. Credits: Project-51, Dave Fuglewicz, Hal McGee. Genre: Noise. Created: 21 Mar 2014 10:31 PM. Plays: 18 -->please comment (2).
The Collapse Of Industrial Civilization 08:59/320k
On "The Collapse Of Industrial Civilization" I collaborated with Dave Fuglewicz (Weird Sound Machine VST) by improvising along with his sounds employing Korg Monotron Duo, Monotron, and Monotron Delay analog synthesizers connected together. Straight-up raw synthesizer. Credits: Project-51. Genre: Noise. Created: 20 Mar 2014 02:40 PM. Plays: 24 -->please comment (1).
Earth Ocean Collaboration 03:59/128k
I occasionally get the urge to make a soundscape with JSG's words, and when I do, I ask him kindly for something special. He is always gracious enough to provide me with something to work with. This one was a challenge, but you decide for yourself if I got it right. Credits: spoken word poem by Jeremy Samuel Gluck, and a loop from my collection of found sounds. . Genre: Abstract Ambient.

Rogue Planet: The Wanderer 11:08/128k
The universe is a dangerous place, especially outside the ordered confines of a solar system. For a rogue or interstellar planet, the dangers are multiplied by a hundred thousand. It's a cold universe, and when no place is home, it's best to just keep moving. Credits: Loops by Axel Mundi - Guest artist, OmniTechnoMatrix, and audio recorded froma video by Janet Wilcox. Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 18 Mar 2014 12:31 AM. Plays: 14 -->please comment (0).
Kiss of Death 08:34/128k
A song inspired by a famous sculpture in Barcelona Spain. The sculpture is in the Poblenou cemetery, above the grave of Josep Llaudet Soler and the inscription reads: "His young heart is thus extinguished. The blood in his veins grows cold. And all strength has gone. Faith has been extolled by his fall into the arms of death. Credits: Loops from Ed Drury - Guest Artist, CYSTEM, and Cousin Silas, also a loop from my private found sound collection. Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 04 Mar 2014 01:27 PM.

The Great Red Spot on Jupiter 03:54/128k
Our scientists have decided that the Great Red Spot on Jupiter is a storm of some sort. The truth is far stranger. It is a sentient life form, and it is getting annoyed by all the probes we keep sending out that way. This is its first none-to-polite message to Earth. Credits: Dave Fuglewicz Project-51.

Plugging Into Space Forest 10:05/192k
You no longer sit before the viewbox. As your eyes close reaching out touching the purple mossy texture of the trees. Welcome your mind to Space Forest. Please remain seated. Credits: Michael A.

Blood Red Moon of Neptune at Midnight 10:07/128k
I have listened to Dave's Moons of Neptune about a hundred times, loving it so much, and then I decided to blaspheme his work by forcing it to co-habitate with some of my horrid noise. I also added one of my favorite Blind Mime guitar loops and some other noise of my own. Credits: several bits of David Fuglewicz's Moons of Neptune, a Blind Mime guitar loop, some keyboard banging of my own, and a personal reading of my own bad poetry. Genre: Abstract Ambient.

Viper Strings Masterpiece 08:53/192k
Recorded two guitar tracks then downloaded several pieces from TapeGerm. Put it all together in Audacity adding effects here and there. Had old Pink Floyd in mind while recording the guitar parts. We emanate from elsewhere. Credits: Michael A. Cosma, Blind Mime, Dave Fuglewicz, Loopy Spiderz. Genre: Avant Garde. Created: 19 Dec 2013 11:54 PM. Plays: 59 -->please comment (2).
Battle Survivor 06:06/128k
A song created for the people I know who have battled cancer, who are battling cancer, and refuse to give up or let the 'monster' win. Keep fighting the good fight, for so much depends on you. Credits: several loops from Blind Mime's Project-48, one loop from my bass guitar dabblings. . Genre: Experimental. Created: 08 Dec 2013 01:09 PM. Plays: 64 -->please comment (1).
Overdrawn at the Memory Bank 08:33/128k
One of my previous mixes with the vocals by JSG removed, and then altered even more, combined with one of my favorite Blind Mime loops (and that is a long list), and some crazy loops from my private found sound collection. I chose the title for its play on words, but it has nothing to do with the 1985 movie of the same name. Credits: one Blind Mime loop, a previous mix of my own with the vocals removed and some found sounds from my private collection . Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 07 Dec 2013 11:00 PM.

Ghosts of Decaying Swamp 07:59/128k
Decaying Machine asked for a collaboration using some of his works, and I obliged. Hopefully this spooky bit of sound will meet with his expectations, because I had a lot of fun putting it together. Credits: several loops by Decaying Machine, a vocal track from Buzzsaw & The Shavings, and some loops from my found sound folder. Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 30 Nov 2013 09:48 PM.

First time back in quite awhile! I'll be loading more tracks in the coming weeks.
Hello Friends! Back in the Datawhore day many of you remixed tracks such as ROLL FOR YOU and WHEN I DIE. If any of you still have the original remix archives of those and others please let me know here. I appreciate your help! JSG/Datawhore
Lest you forget me, a modest update is called for. In the near future, mixes originating @ TG and for some years available as Recollage 1 & 2 will be re-released by Myhandthanx, a splendid French netlabel. In addition, there will be an EP on UK netlabel Noise Research - "Noise In The Head" - that includes TG remixes, too. More news on both as and when and why not?

Here's the first installment of a new video show I'm doing for UtahLocal.tv. We'll see how it goes. I'm definitely fumbling with the ropes, but I'm nothing if not curious.
If you'd like to help me kill the cat, I encourage you to post a response video on youtube where you use one of the sounds I talk about in this week's show. The toy xylophone and toy sax and both available as source files in the Free Loop Pack 16 project listed in the left sidebar.

I have lost the ability to stream on my linux pc with the new changes to the html5. Due to this development I have created an alternate streaming site of my best Tapegerm material. Please visit this link if you are unable to stream my material and would like to.

We've programmed HTML5 Audio into your song pages, so you can access the audio from most devices now. This audio is not currently supported in the system Tapegerm uses to count plays. Let us know if you see any bugginess in the output.
As it is, we will probably eventually move everything toward HTML5 and figure out a different way to track trending songs. We're not concerned much with charts and rankings, obviously, but it's useful to know what is being explored by our strange group of artists at any given time.
Hello Germs! I just uploaded 10 short one-shots to Project-37 Free Loop Pack 16. These are the first loops that I have uploaded to the Tapegerm site in several years. On October 5, 2012 I recorded a 20 minute free form improvisation for four Korg Monotron analog synthesizers - two Monotrons, one Monotron Duo, one Monotron Delay. I then chopped it up into 245 one-shots. I have uploaded these 10 for your mixing and remixing pleasure. If you like these, I can create a separate Tapegerm project and upload all 245 one-shots and the entire 20 minute track for you to use. The 20 minute track is available in WAV file format at my Soundcloud page right now.
When I Lose Collaboration
"To my mind and ears simply outstanding minimalist, intuitive work here from Z. Captures the spirit of my poem perfectly. I love it." -- Jeremy Gluck (on 04/17/14 14:01:55)
"Wow, I totally did not know that Seiei Jack is on Tapegerm! Jack is an old friend from the 19802 cassette hometaper scene. Like me, he has been making homemade sounds since 1982. We did a collaboration tape last year titled "since 1982"." -- Hal McGee (on 03/22/14 13:53:47)

I enjoy recording stuff and messing around with filters and effects. I don't know if any of my creations are any good, but I have fun making them. I've been making music with the computer since 98 or so. Being burnt out on conventional music; I'm now interested in more experimental stuff. Website: http://ufoodd.bandcamp.com
