I'll be working on a new album over the course of the next few months here on Tapegerm. I've thought about doing this of on and on for quite some time. Maybe it's just a matter starting, as is usually the case with anything creative.
I'm taking a page from Ken Clinger's book and will be writing a kind of Creative Log as I go. We'll see how that goes. Wish me luck.
I'm in Atlanta, Georgia, for a 3-day conference for work. I'm the Creative Services Director at an AlphaGraphics in Salt Lake City. I'm the technical guy in the shop and now we're getting into a new software world (XMPIE) so I'm at the International User's Group conference here.
I'm crazy busy at the real job, so I'm not sure why I'm thinking I can embark on any kind of creative venture, but on the plane I was playing around with music apps on an iPad and was thinking it would be fun to do something new; at least new for me.
So we'll see how it goes and we'll see you next time.

You may notice a change to the blogs and videos appearing here on Tapegerm's front page. After dealing with a fairly steady spewing of spam, we've made the front page blog list show only artists who are collaborating and otherwise participating with us. Historically, that's determined by whether or not you upload a composition utilizing one or more source files you might find provided via any of the many projects on Tapegerm. You're considered a collaborator if you also just create collaboration projects in which we can participate.
Spam is considered anything posted by anyone who is not otherwise collaborating with us. Tapegerm is strictly a labor of love by everyone involved so you may find spam by artists only attempting to promote themselves or by bottom-feeding content trolls. Neither activity is productive here.
While we don't feel any obligation to do so, be forewarned that on any given day, profiles that contain content without having otherwise collaborated here will be deleted without warning -- the entire profile and its content.
Now, go visit a project page and collaborate. It's good for the soul and a splendid time.

July's Audio Bomb will be armed at the end of the week and launch on archive.org so Blind Mime has added a few stems from a new song just completed called Change Your Space. There are guitars and keys to use as you please.
The Audio Bomb project is open to everyone to drop source sounds into. Just drop them as attachments to a comment at the page link above. Everything is packaged and archived at archive.org each month.

I was involved in Tapegerm for several years sometime ago. I released a few albums of the tracks I did with the TG members. You can see those and my full catalog here: http://lonelywhistle.doncampau.com
I am thinking about making some new Tapegerm pieces if I get the time. It's all about the time, isn't it?

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.
