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.

We have begun a collective source drop for June 2016. Just go to the new forum topic and add your own source audio and loops to the collection. We'll compile them onto archive.org after the end of each month.

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.
