Tapegerm Collective began in May 2000, spawned from a collaboration at homemademusic.com where loops from a selection of diy cassette albums were dropped into a pool that artists used to create new music. A group of these artists formed a collective project to share loops and evolve the resulting music over time; currently mutating into its 20th year.
Welcome to Tapegerm
Tapegerm is a place for recording artists to share sounds and create new sonic worlds. It is a close-knit community and we welcome evolving ideas, exploring 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 a revolution.
