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.

Project-1: Baneemy

This project hails from the early Tapegerm days. There are 21 loops culled from Baneemy's double cassette album, The Walter Martin Cult . The loop pack includes short loops of a Casio guitar and Casio sax, along with brief snippets of found broadcasts and assorted percussion, guitars and whathaveyou. Many excellent pieces of new music have resulted from this source material, originally created in 1990. Please tell about any new music you create with these sources in the comments below.

Created "Not Yoda's Business" using these Baneemy Mixes. First I put them in LMMS along with some other sounds and created some beat patterns. Thereafter, I imported this piece into Audacity whereby I crafted additional audio patterns intertwining the mixture. To top it off I whipped out a guitar and plugged into my old Digitech RP1 floor pedal and recorded a live guitar track over top of the sonisphere. All work done using LMMS and Audacity within the Windows 8.1 OS.

Recordings for Project-1

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.
