Newest Collaborations

Pictures This Morning Pictures This Morning by Blind Mime Studio: This is the second composition for the Sunrise & Lester project. This time I brought a sample of Gregg's saxophone into Alchemy in Logic Pro X and tweaked it slightly to create the main pad and then built synths and arpeggios around it.. Credits: Composed by Bryan Baker. Saxophone sample played by Gregg Allen on "The Sunrise & Lester" by Bryan Baker and Gregg Allen. Project-24..
Lester's Folly Lester's Folly by Blind Mime Studio: I took a sample of Gregg Allen's sax from the 1985 4-track cassette recording The Sunrise & Lester along with organ and percussion sources from my song Hey Ruth and blended them organically with the iOS app Caelestis.. Credits: composed by Bryan Baker with loops by Bryan Baker and Gregg Allen from Tapegerm Project-24..
From The Crow's Nest From The Crow's Nest by CIIIGoff: Again I have been called by forces unknown to develop one of my dream melodies for people who live on the other side of my subconscious. This one came from long ago on the night of November 19, 2008 (I keep all these dream melodies in a folder; I've been "developing" these bits of dreamed songs into recorded music since the 1980's.) . Credits: Jack Hertz files from the Tapegerm 1606 June 2016 Sample Pack, Mystified "remixing" files from Bandcamp (Trombone Drone, Urban Discourse, Pan Pipes Drone), Heartbeat and Arrhythmia Medication Advertisement, C. Goff III: Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer, Sleigh Bells, Bass Knocker Clacker, Wooden Flute, Thor Power Hammer, Barbie Violin, Voice.
We're Going Over We're Going Over by CIIIGoff: A disturbing interpretation of a song which was meant to prod young men in the USA to join the armed forces to fight in Europe during World War I. Literally thousands of these songs were written in the second decade of the 20th Century. "We’re Going Over" is just one of several penned by Andrew Sterling, Bernie Grossman, and Arthur Lange. I know of at least one recording of this song, released by Victor Records in 1917, recorded by the Peerless Quartet. Of course, my inspiration for recreating this piece lies in the fact that for years now, the USA has been sending its soldiers, weapons, (and now, its soldier-free drones) to muck around overseas, killing in the name of "liberty," and this vicious process only seems likely to escalate as two hawkish leaders vie for the US Presidency this fall.. Credits: Gabrielleschi Tapegerm Audio Bomb August 2016 Project-23, Peerless Quartet 78 RPM Record, C. Goff III: Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Musescore MIDI Composing Tool, Voice .
The Human Protractor The Human Protractor by CIIIGoff: This piece all started with a piano improv that evoked thoughts of a Dadaist Carnival. Naturally, Mister Cosma's Canfield Fair recordings fit perfectly into this theme, as well as the gymnasts who so recently filled my television screen, stretching their muscles all the way from Brazil to Kansas City. The Moon Zero recordings helped a bit with coloring the surreal landscape. . Credits: Tapegerm Wacky Bits Project-10 from Anixas/Michael Cosma, Tapegerm Moon Zero Four Project-7 by Sample Science, C. Goff III: Casio AP-24 Electric Piano, Musescore MIDI Composing Tool, Voice, Micro Moog Analog Synthesizer, B Musical Electronic Orchestra, Natural Reader Text-To-Voice Software .
Let's All Carve Some Pictures On A Rock Let's All Carve Some Pictures On A Rock by CIIIGoff: This one is based on two different melodies which I dreamed in two different dreams on two different nights during two different years. To complicate matters further, I have two different mixes of this duple duple thing, both of which I like, but you are only getting to hear this one. There's a whole lot of Baneemy in this, all twisted around to fit just right into the grooves. . Credits: Baneemy Files from Tapegerm Project-1, C. Goff III: Casio AP-24 Electric Piano, Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Fruity Loops Audio Studio Software, Mahalo U30 Soprano Ukulele, Voice, A Very Few Non-Tapegerm Pre-Recorded Samples .
Revolution 999 Revolution 999 by CIIIGoff: When I was ten years old, the Beatles White Album was released. The first time I heard "Revolution 9" I was genuinely frightened. I wonder what the 10 year olds of today might think of this version… Some of the voices contained within will be recognizable to some listeners. This version has no Lennon, but it does have a bit of Lenin.. Credits: Harsh Reality Chris Phinney Kidgerm Project-2, Various Pre-Recorded Non-Tapegerm Samples, C. Goff III: Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer, Voice .
Assume That Joseph Is Joe Assume That Joseph Is Joe by CIIIGoff: This is another of my dreamed melodies put into production for real world listening. I was close to finishing this recording when my eight-year-old computer hard drive burned out. Finishing this piece was the first project I took on after replacing the hard drive, operating system, several pieces of software, pre-sets, etc. Not an easy task this, but challenges often make for good music --you, of course, have to be the judge this time... . Credits: Credits: Blind Mime Studios Files from the 1606 June 2016 Sample Pack Project-19, CIIIGoff from Carpet Balming Project-20 C. Goff III: Casio AP-24 Electric Piano, Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer, Ovation Acoustic Guitar, Voice.
When Tipper Gore Knocked On Bill's Door When Tipper Gore Knocked On Bill's Door by CIIIGoff: I very recently dreamed the melody for this one. I'm sure that the dream music was influenced by watching an old film of Thelonious Monk the night before I had fallen asleep. The course to the interpretation presented here was initially steered by a recently acquired Casio AP-24 (full size) electric piano. .

Goff III: Casio AP-24 Electric Piano, Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Voice, Donkey Call, Remo Paddle Drum (with Scrub Brush), Shakers, Ocarina, Harmonicas, Animal Calls.

WHAT IS TAPEGERM?

Tapegerm is a group of recording artists who share sounds and create new sonic experiences with them. We are a close-knit community and we welcome evolving ideas which explore new ways to collaborate. Tapegerm was formed in May 2000 and after fourteen years of online collaboration, resulting in over 100 albums of music we decided to start fresh July 4, 2014. It was time for another revolution.

To begin collaborating with artists here at Tapegerm, simply create a profile and start downloading source files from any of the Projects you'll find listed on the Projects page via the Projects menu at the top of any page. Then create a new recording using one or more sources from one or more projects and upload it.

You're also encouraged to initiate projects of your own. Source audio may be hosted here with your project, or elsewhere online if you wish -- just tell us where in your project description.

LICENSING: Sources on tapegerm.com are royalty free, Creative Commons Attribution-licensed Share-alike non-commercial -- please credit the source artists when uploading recordings to tapegerm.com or elsewhere. Recordings uploaded to tapegerm.com are freely available to stream and download here and are also Creative Commons Attribution-licensed Share-alike non-commercial. You may only upload recordings which are Tapegerm collaborations -- they must contain at least one credited tapegerm source element. We are interested in collaborating with you.

Visit the forum to discuss topics of interest, upload pictures and art to your gallery, share youtube videos, comment often about what artists are creating here and make some noise.

On 12/15/16 01:55:38PM Regarding Review: CGoffIII's Genre Party, @CIIIGoff said: 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.


On 11/21/16 06:48:27PM Regarding We're Going Over, @CIIIGoff said: Gabriel, very glad to read your words of encouragement, glad you dig. Yes, Zappa, The Residents, MIDI scores... all friends of my ears. Of course, your contribution helped make this what it is too, thanks so much! I like your "Come Join Our Forces" video... great uses of light, reflection, water, AND sound. Keep up the good work.

On 11/17/16 01:46:23PM Regarding Working on new Tapegerm Album, @Blind Mime Studio said: I've been listening to what you've been doing here and looking forward to how you're going to put it all together.

On 11/14/16 03:06:54PM Regarding Working on new Tapegerm Album, @CIIIGoff said: Looking forward to your new album Bryan! I'm almost done with mine now; but it's going to have a couple of non-Tapegerm pieces on it too (two of ten). Good luck with the sculpting.

On 09/17/16 03:49:18AM Regarding We're Going Over, @CIIIGoff said: BB! Your commentary is a refreshing splash of positive reinforcement, thanks much, and I'm very glad you dig.

On 09/16/16 01:04:01PM Regarding We're Going Over, @Blind Mime Studio said: Fantastic, man! Brilliant idea of remaking this, and your "disturbing" twist puts a delightful spin on the craziness we find ourselves in.

On 09/09/16 03:00:45AM Regarding The Human Protractor, @CIIIGoff said: Thanks for the positive reinforcement, Mr. B! Yes, I think there is a bit of variation on a style going on here. I'll add that I've come back to Tapegerm in the last few months, deserted as it sadly appears to be these days, because since 2002 or so, many of my best works have been sculpted at Tapegerm. There's something about being able to plug in strange, modified sources into my compositions that forces me to think in new ways. Thanks much for keeping this precious candle lit!

On 09/08/16 11:09:06AM Regarding The Human Protractor, @Blind Mime Studio said: Dadaist Carnival is right -- love it. Fits in with what I've been hearing you do here of late too. I like hearing these pieces developing this way. I don't know if that's any intension, but I like the variation on a style as it were; if that makes any sense.

On 08/22/16 01:30:54PM Regarding Tapegerm Audio Bomb August 2016, @home said: Thanks for contributing!

On 07/31/16 02:14:55PM Regarding Tapegerm Audio Bomb July 2016, @home said: Ambient restaurant conversation from surrounding tables. If you listen closely there's a guy at the table next to us monopolizing their discussion of political issues.

On 07/28/16 02:12:56PM Regarding Tapegerm Audio Bomb July 2016, @home said: Stems from a new Blind Mime Ensemble song called Change Your Space. Use as you wish, but use it here too! Hear the song here if you like: http://blindmime.com/blind-mime-ensemble/audio/211/change-your-space

On 07/01/16 12:01:39PM Regarding Tapegerm Audio Bomb July 2016, @home said: A blurpy synth blip.

On 07/01/16 11:40:49AM Regarding welcome back to tape germ, @home said: Or a project might host its source files offsite on archive.org, for instance. Like this one: http://tapegerm.com/home/projects/19/tapegerm-audio-bomb-june-2016 -- the link to its source files is in the description.
