When I Lose Collaboration 04:56/128k
The last bit of requested spoken word from JSG to ZM, and it was a long time coming. More proof that JSG is a timeless presence among us mortals. Credits: spoken word by Jeremy Gluck, various sound FX from my private stash of found sound. Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 14 Apr 2014 11:39 PM. Plays: 4 -->please comment (1).

Tank Inside Train Space 06:54/256k
After checking out The Collapse of Civilization I was inspired to revisit Project-51 and rather than adding my own material I used some Hal McGee collaboration audio material that I found I had in a zip file on my pc. Once inside the planet I tightened everything to the core, re-aligned the 12 jumper segments and added a new code to the security console. Credits: Project-51, Dave Fuglewicz, Hal McGee.

Hal McGee
The Collapse Of Industrial Civilization 08:59/320k
On "The Collapse Of Industrial Civilization" I collaborated with Dave Fuglewicz (Weird Sound Machine VST) by improvising along with his sounds employing Korg Monotron Duo, Monotron, and Monotron Delay analog synthesizers connected together. Straight-up raw synthesizer. Credits: Project-51. Genre: Noise. Created: 20 Mar 2014 02:40 PM. Plays: 23 -->please comment (1).

Zebra Mann
Earth Ocean Collaboration 03:59/128k
I occasionally get the urge to make a soundscape with JSG's words, and when I do, I ask him kindly for something special. He is always gracious enough to provide me with something to work with. This one was a challenge, but you decide for yourself if I got it right. Credits: spoken word poem by Jeremy Samuel Gluck, and a loop from my collection of found sounds. . Genre: Abstract Ambient.

Zebra Mann
Rogue Planet: The Wanderer 11:08/128k
The universe is a dangerous place, especially outside the ordered confines of a solar system. For a rogue or interstellar planet, the dangers are multiplied by a hundred thousand. It's a cold universe, and when no place is home, it's best to just keep moving. Credits: Loops by Axel Mundi - Guest artist, OmniTechnoMatrix, and audio recorded froma video by Janet Wilcox.

Zebra Mann
Kiss of Death 08:34/128k
A song inspired by a famous sculpture in Barcelona Spain. The sculpture is in the Poblenou cemetery, above the grave of Josep Llaudet Soler and the inscription reads: "His young heart is thus extinguished. The blood in his veins grows cold. And all strength has gone. Faith has been extolled by his fall into the arms of death. Credits: Loops from Ed Drury - Guest Artist, CYSTEM, and Cousin Silas, also a loop from my private found sound collection. Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 04 Mar 2014 01:27 PM.

The Great Red Spot on Jupiter 03:54/128k
Our scientists have decided that the Great Red Spot on Jupiter is a storm of some sort. The truth is far stranger. It is a sentient life form, and it is getting annoyed by all the probes we keep sending out that way. This is its first none-to-polite message to Earth. Credits: Dave Fuglewicz Project-51.

Plugging Into Space Forest 10:05/192k

Zebra Mann
Blood Red Moon of Neptune at Midnight 10:07/128k
I have listened to Dave's Moons of Neptune about a hundred times, loving it so much, and then I decided to blaspheme his work by forcing it to co-habitate with some of my horrid noise. I also added one of my favorite Blind Mime guitar loops and some other noise of my own. Credits: several bits of David Fuglewicz's Moons of Neptune, a Blind Mime guitar loop, some keyboard banging of my own, and a personal reading of my own bad poetry. Genre: Abstract Ambient.

Zebra Mann
Battle Survivor 06:06/128k
A song created for the people I know who have battled cancer, who are battling cancer, and refuse to give up or let the 'monster' win. Keep fighting the good fight, for so much depends on you. Credits: several loops from Blind Mime's Project-48, one loop from my bass guitar dabblings. . Genre: Experimental. Created: 08 Dec 2013 01:09 PM. Plays: 62 -->please comment (1).

Overdrawn at the Memory Bank 08:33/128k
One of my previous mixes with the vocals by JSG removed, and then altered even more, combined with one of my favorite Blind Mime loops (and that is a long list), and some crazy loops from my private found sound collection. I chose the title for its play on words, but it has nothing to do with the 1985 movie of the same name. Credits: one Blind Mime loop, a previous mix of my own with the vocals removed and some found sounds from my private collection . Genre: Abstract Ambient. Created: 07 Dec 2013 11:00 PM.

Ghosts of Decaying Swamp 07:59/128k
Decaying Machine asked for a collaboration using some of his works, and I obliged. Hopefully this spooky bit of sound will meet with his expectations, because I had a lot of fun putting it together.

The Traveler & the Station Master 08:27/128k
A once-in-a-lifetime meeting, on a desolated platform late at night, and only the listener knows where the geographical location might be. This is one to let your imagination come out and play. Enjoy. Best listened to with your eyes closed. Credits: one loop by Blind Mime, one loop of a friend doodling on bass guitar, several bits of sound from my loop folder, including found sounds. .

Forthcoming Releases Feature TG Remixes(224)

by Jeremy Gluck

Lest you forget me, a modest update is called for. In the near future, mixes originating @ TG and for some years available as Recollage 1 & 2 will be re-released by Myhandthanx, a splendid French netlabel. In addition, there will be an EP on UK netlabel Noise Research - "Noise In The Head" - that includes TG remixes, too. More news on both as and when and why not?

-->please comment (1)

"Forgetting you would only be possible after one hundred years, say around 2112. Even when I am not mixing/listening to TG collaborations, I hear your voice in my head. That should worry me, but somehow, it gives me comfort. "-- Zebra Mann (on 10/21/13 21:36:31)

-->please comment (2)

"Calling all fans of Fripertronics, step right up and have a listen. My reference to the style of looping sounds within a performance context as popularized by Robert Fripp is in no way an indication of imitation. This technique has been one of the oldest tape manipulation techniques around. That being said, Disism serves a superb platter of sonic Boney Baloney, all the more delicious by having been aged in the Goff Disism baloney cellars since 1988. I highly recommend this to all Tapegerm citizens. Well done indeed."-- David Fuglewicz (on 09/08/13 08:04:46)

"And the artwork by Justin Jackley deserves a special mention here. Fantastic. Check the larger picture (via the link), the small version here does not do it justice. "-- David Fuglewicz (on 09/08/13 08:10:31)

"Well, that was not bad. A few people stumbled in while I was recording this evening. Got to chat with someone in Brasil... Another person from the middle east popped in. Not bad. I think I even finished a track. I'll let it simmer a while though. Used one of Hal McGee's microcassette recordings and a loop from Chris Phinney and then played improvised piano and synth for a couple passers by. The google+ audio sounds like crap though. I need to figure out something there. Maybe I'll try mic'ing the performance with a condenser tomorrow. Need a battery. Stop by if you have a chance."-- Blind Mime Ensemble (on 02/18/13 21:17:14)

If you'd like to help me kill the cat, I encourage you to post a response video on youtube where you use one of the sounds I talk about in this week's show. The toy xylophone and toy sax and both available as source files in the Free Loop Pack 16 project listed in the left sidebar.

HTML5 Audio Added

by The Tapegerm Collective

We've programmed HTML5 Audio into your song pages, so you can access the audio from most devices now. This audio is not currently supported in the system Tapegerm uses to count plays. Let us know if you see any bugginess in the output.

As it is, we will probably eventually move everything toward HTML5 and figure out a different way to track trending songs. We're not concerned much with charts and rankings, obviously, but it's useful to know what is being explored by our strange group of artists at any given time.

-->please comment (3)

"I've started building a HTML5 playlist onto your profile home page, so you'll notice some odd things going on there for a few days."-- Blind Mime Ensemble (on 10/19/12 09:14:30)

"I have Firefox and Chromium in Linux. Firefox does not even show the player. Chromium shows it yet it will not play. However, I agree with the progression toward html5. Therefore, I have created my own alternate site for any outdated browsers or os that would still like to stream. "-- Michael A Cosma (on 10/21/12 21:28:07)

"As of October Firefox is developing native mp3 support for their browser. In the meantime, we will be adding a fall-option to Flash for those browsers that don't support mp3 natively."-- Blind Mime Ensemble (on 10/22/12 04:16:58)

new collab material by Hal McGee uploaded(404)

by Hal McGee Sources

Hello Germs! I just uploaded 10 short one-shots to Project-37 Free Loop Pack 16. These are the first loops that I have uploaded to the Tapegerm site in several years. On October 5, 2012 I recorded a 20 minute free form improvisation for four Korg Monotron analog synthesizers - two Monotrons, one Monotron Duo, one Monotron Delay. I then chopped it up into 245 one-shots. I have uploaded these 10 for your mixing and remixing pleasure. If you like these, I can create a separate Tapegerm project and upload all 245 one-shots and the entire 20 minute track for you to use. The 20 minute track is available in WAV file format at my Soundcloud page right now.

-->please comment (3)

"Hal, I'm working on a piece right now and these definitely will appear. Thanks."-- David Fuglewicz (on 10/09/12 20:37:52)

"nice, Dave! thanks!"-- Hal McGee (on 10/10/12 09:18:08)

"Nice, Hal. Although small by past Free Loop Pack standards, this project has some interesting source material that should combine in a number of satisfying ways. Like these monotrons, Fuglewicz's large bounty of sounds and Mills, Mann and my own small contributions. I've already got some things brewing. There's an album's worth of inspiration here already, I believe. Hopefully others will join in too."-- Blind Mime Ensemble (on 10/11/12 19:58:00)


Tapegerm is currently seeking funding to continue operating as a free experimental collaboration community into our 13th year. Our goal of $1400 pays for a dedicated server for one year. We currently need $490 more to get there, so please help -- thank you!
