Newest Collaborations

From The Crow's Nest From The Crow's Nest by CIIIGoff: Again I have been called by forces unknown to develop one of my dream melodies for people who live on the other side of my subconscious. This one came from long ago on the night of November 19, 2008 (I keep all these dream melodies in a folder; I've been "developing" these bits of dreamed songs into recorded music since the 1980's.) .

Goff III: Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer, Sleigh Bells, Bass Knocker Clacker, Wooden Flute, Thor Power Hammer, Barbie Violin, Voice.
We're Going Over We're Going Over by CIIIGoff: A disturbing interpretation of a song which was meant to prod young men in the USA to join the armed forces to fight in Europe during World War I. Literally thousands of these songs were written in the second decade of the 20th Century. "We’re Going Over" is just one of several penned by Andrew Sterling, Bernie Grossman, and Arthur Lange. I know of at least one recording of this song, released by Victor Records in 1917, recorded by the Peerless Quartet. Of course, my inspiration for recreating this piece lies in the fact that for years now, the USA has been sending its soldiers, weapons, (and now, its soldier-free drones) to muck around overseas, killing in the name of "liberty," and this vicious process only seems likely to escalate as two hawkish leaders vie for the US Presidency this fall..

The Human Protractor The Human Protractor by CIIIGoff: This piece all started with a piano improv that evoked thoughts of a Dadaist Carnival. Naturally, Mister Cosma's Canfield Fair recordings fit perfectly into this theme, as well as the gymnasts who so recently filled my television screen, stretching their muscles all the way from Brazil to Kansas City. The Moon Zero recordings helped a bit with coloring the surreal landscape. . Credits: Tapegerm Wacky Bits Project-10 from Anixas/Michael Cosma, Tapegerm Moon Zero Four Project-7 by Sample Science, C.

Let's All Carve Some Pictures On A Rock Let's All Carve Some Pictures On A Rock by CIIIGoff: This one is based on two different melodies which I dreamed in two different dreams on two different nights during two different years. To complicate matters further, I have two different mixes of this duple duple thing, both of which I like, but you are only getting to hear this one. There's a whole lot of Baneemy in this, all twisted around to fit just right into the grooves. . Credits: Baneemy Files from Tapegerm Project-1, C. Goff III: Casio AP-24 Electric Piano, Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Fruity Loops Audio Studio Software, Mahalo U30 Soprano Ukulele, Voice, A Very Few Non-Tapegerm Pre-Recorded Samples .
Revolution 999 Revolution 999 by CIIIGoff: When I was ten years old, the Beatles White Album was released. The first time I heard "Revolution 9" I was genuinely frightened. I wonder what the 10 year olds of today might think of this version… Some of the voices contained within will be recognizable to some listeners. This version has no Lennon, but it does have a bit of Lenin.. Credits: Harsh Reality Chris Phinney Kidgerm Project-2, Various Pre-Recorded Non-Tapegerm Samples, C. Goff III: Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer, Voice .
Assume That Joseph Is Joe Assume That Joseph Is Joe by CIIIGoff: This is another of my dreamed melodies put into production for real world listening. I was close to finishing this recording when my eight-year-old computer hard drive burned out. Finishing this piece was the first project I took on after replacing the hard drive, operating system, several pieces of software, pre-sets, etc. Not an easy task this, but challenges often make for good music --you, of course, have to be the judge this time... .

Goff III: Casio AP-24 Electric Piano, Midisoft MIDI Composing Tool, Korg R3 Vocoder/Synthesizer, Ovation Acoustic Guitar, Voice.
When Tipper Gore Knocked On Bill's Door When Tipper Gore Knocked On Bill's Door by CIIIGoff: I very recently dreamed the melody for this one. I'm sure that the dream music was influenced by watching an old film of Thelonious Monk the night before I had fallen asleep. The course to the interpretation presented here was initially steered by a recently acquired Casio AP-24 (full size) electric piano. .

Working on new Tapegerm Album


By blindmime, 2016-11-14
Working on new Tapegerm Album

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.

Front Page Privilèges

Front Page Privilèges

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.

welcome back to tape germ


By don campau, 2016-06-30

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?

Yes, Zappa, The Residents, MIDI scores... all friends of my ears. Of course, your contribution helped make this what it is too, thanks so much! I like your "Come Join Our Forces" video... great uses of light, reflection, water, AND sound. Keep up the good work.

On 11/21/16 04:58:26PM Regarding We're Going Over, @Gabrielleschi said: nice to hear this kind of stuff, like ZappaResidenteBiteTheWaxTadpole, a lot of work with Musescore huh? hehe, Thank you for add some noises I did, free the freedom!!

On 11/17/16 01:46:23PM Regarding Working on new Tapegerm Album, @Blind Mime Studios said: I've been listening to what you've been doing here and looking forward to how you're going to put it all together.

On 11/14/16 03:06:54PM Regarding Working on new Tapegerm Album, @CIIIGoff said: Looking forward to your new album Bryan! I'm almost done with mine now; but it's going to have a couple of non-Tapegerm pieces on it too (two of ten). Good luck with the sculpting.

On 09/17/16 03:49:18AM Regarding We're Going Over, @CIIIGoff said: BB! Your commentary is a refreshing splash of positive reinforcement, thanks much, and I'm very glad you dig.

On 09/16/16 01:04:01PM Regarding We're Going Over, @Blind Mime Studios said: Fantastic, man! Brilliant idea of remaking this, and your "disturbing" twist puts a delightful spin on the craziness we find ourselves in.

On 09/09/16 03:00:45AM Regarding The Human Protractor, @CIIIGoff said: Thanks for the positive reinforcement, Mr. B! Yes, I think there is a bit of variation on a style going on here. I'll add that I've come back to Tapegerm in the last few months, deserted as it sadly appears to be these days, because since 2002 or so, many of my best works have been sculpted at Tapegerm. There's something about being able to plug in strange, modified sources into my compositions that forces me to think in new ways. Thanks much for keeping this precious candle lit!
