Newest Collaborations

The Case Of The Cut Down Cut Up The Case Of The Cut Down Cut Up by CIIIGoff: A mystery full of intrigue and dangerous encounters. This is a psycho-autobiographical fictional non-profit production which is not intended for commercial retail. No rights are reserved. . Credits: Audio Loops By Sample Science from Moon Zero Four Tapegerm Project-7, Various Television Media, Lo Fidelity 1987 Disism Recording, Car Door From Mike Metlay's 1996 Toyota Avalon, Sound Effects, Editing, Production. .
Fleshy Fuliform Vilok Fleshy Fuliform Vilok by CIIIGoff: An attempt to emulate some of the moods and atmospheres of this brilliant production by Rene Laloux (director) and Alain Goraguer (soundtrack). None of the original movie soundtrack was sampled for this interpretation.. Credits: Nine Audio Loops By Jack Hertz for Fantastic Planetscapes Project-9 (all modified by C. Goff III), Natural Reader Voice Emulator, Janus Professional Sound Library, Carmelita Goff (vocal), Cows Of Deanna Rose Farmstead (vocal), Passing Automobile (8/15/2013). C. Goff III Plays: Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer (used for intro/outro only), Witch Hazel Woodwinds, Octavia, Sound Effects, Editing, Production .
Moliki Moliki by anixas: Recorded from phone to pc using Audacity and a synth app on the phone. Then added 4 of the Wacky Bits adding effects and modding those bits as I went along. All recording and mixing done using Audacity. . Credits: Tapegerm Project-10, Anixas.
Captain Hamilton Captain Hamilton by anixas: Downloaded public domain movie Cosmos War of the Planets and Public domain movie Plan 9 From Outer Space on to my netbook. Then I came out of the headphone jack and into my main pc. I would find parts of the movie that I liked and record them using Audacity and saving small sound files. Most of the parts were left as-is except for adjusting the volume or balance. Two synth pieces and one guitar piece were recorded live and they appear in the center of the project. All of the pieces were then arranged inside of Audacity and some fades were applied. . Credits: Anixas, Plan 9 From Outer Space(public domain), TapeGerm Project-6.
Moon Zero Four Moon Zero Four by SampleScience: This track was made using sounds from public domain films and documentaries of the fifties. I've treated the sounds with many effects to give it them this dark and lush tone. The percussions are from public domain films too, they sound lofi and are purposely out of sync. I think old sounds from other eras are a good source of inspiration and give the tone of my track a special eerie tone.. Credits: SampleScience, project-6.
GreigeTravail rmx GreigeTravail rmx by tapegermGIO: I used all of the resources to create this remix. Made with Max/Msp and a few filters and resonators.. Credits: Recordings for Project-3.
Triad Dreamz Triad Dreamz by Corypheus: . Credits: Loops By Baneemy (project-1) And Corypheus.
Sophistikation - Magnetica RX Sophistikation - Magnetica RX by Corypheus: A Remix Of The Tune "Sophistikation" By Omnitechnomatrix.... Credits: Loops By Decaying Machine Guest Artist And OTM -: Mix By Corypheus.
When I Lose When I Lose by JSG58: One of many poems swilling around my hard drive that I plucked from obscurity and rotated to Da Mann for his best-yet work with my words and voice. . Credits: Jeremy Gluck: Words and Voice Zeebra Mann: Everything Else.
Lullaby for Little Monsters Lullaby for Little Monsters by bedawang: . Credits: Created with the kids toy instruments of tapegerm project-2. A deep experiment with Izotope's Iris.

Heartening it is to find Tapegerm resurrected. As for me, I am preparing material for an album with Zeebra Mann. Out of 'germ orbit I am releasing an album in the autumn made with Robert Coyne (son of Kevin, for Anglophiles...), completing work on Exedra material, and resuming with Don Tyler on SoftWorld.  



This looks like a cool instrument for Live. Pulsor is a Max for Live virtual instrument. It is essentially a monophonic synth that produces glitching/pulsing sounds and complex rhythmic soundscapes thanks to its odd circuitry. It can also create evolving lead synth sounds, monophonic bass timbres and many other unexpected noises.
