Project-20: Tapegerm 20th Anniversary

To mark Tapegerm's 20th Anniversary we are making the entire resident artist source audio archive available on 

The source files are organized by artist on You may download and use them royalty free with attribution to the artist and Tapegerm Collective.

We've further organized the sources on into the hundreds of projects for which they were created. For instance, there are monthly project contributions by many artists from around 2001-2005. You might find it interesting to focus on one artist's loops from one month for one composition. Many recordings were created this way at the time so we wanted to maintain that structure here. Perhaps you'll even accept the challenge to create a composition for every monthly project -- 143 (we're guessing) in all!

Over the years, many artists outside the collective were invited to contribute sources for guest artist projects and these projects are being made available as well, along with lots of special projects such as Tapegerm collaborations with other groups and events as well as events of our own making.

Moving forward, we hope to see artists creating new recordings with our sounds and uploading them here. As you tag your credits to a project you will see it take shape as sounds are voiced by different artists and an album of contributions evolves, along with comments from creators and listeners alike to form a wholly unique experience.
