Hello, I'm Bryan Baker. I flirted with music and recording when I was a kid. Experimenting with portable reel-to-reel recorders, then doing 8-track collages and silly kid stuff. Got my first 4-track in college and soon after found Option Magazine around 1983. A few years later I started publishing a zine called GAJOOB featuring home recording artists. I never talked much about my own recordings in the zine, but I like making everything from rock songs to crazy sound experiments. I do a lot of the latter at tapegerm.com. I'm just getting into Logic Pro now and still exploring and having fun. Hit me up for a collaboration or something. You'll find me on Apple Music and elsewhere as Blind Mime Ensemble.

01 Blind Mime Ensemble "Hey, Ruth"
The original track from which all this subsequent madness ensues.
02 Cystem "Wheelin"
Blind Mime Open Loops, Don Campau Guest Artist Mix, Omnitechnomatrix Open Loops , Q-Cut Guest Artist Mix and Cystem. Being inspired by Bryan and Don's guitar loops, I went out and got myself a Line6 PODxt and an Ebow. yeehaw.

Composed, arranged, sung, & strummed by C. Goff III.. This is a true story which took place September 4, 2006, a few blocks from my home in Lawrence, Kansas. The accompanying photo collage was made from the few pictures mentioned in the song.
08 The Ghosts Lounge "Like Thomas Jefferson Loves HipHop I Love You Baby"
Tapegerm Resident Artist loops by DJ Get Yo Fat On Open loops and Blind Mime Open Loops, Soul Bossa Nova by Quincy Jones, Picking Up Girls Made Easy from Hyde Park Records (1975). Thomas Jefferson seems to have been obsessed with innovation for its own sake, and I think he would have appreciated how well hip-hop represents the rhythms that result from modern innovations. There's innovation and originality in relationships too, and I've often thought that it's the small moments of private wit, like a passing, brilliantly-conceived bit of cute talk on the part of a girlfriend or wife, that should be counted among the most valuable things in life. As for the remaining texts and subtexts in the song, I leave that up to you. This is the second track from what I plan as my first all-Tapegerm album, and it's in keeping with the spirit of the first one I posted.
09 Buzzsaw The Shavings "Stealing Henriettas Gown for the Duc Philippe"
Blind Mime Open Loops Mix. Entirely excluded from the affairs of state and partaking of the conquests of the Rhine and beyond by order of discerning higher authority, the debauched Duc Philippe compensates by making a raid on wife Henrietta's bedroom in order to achieve the conquest of her favourite gown.

Mix Insecta Sonic: Dave Fuglewicz open loops, CYSTEM open loops, Buzzsaw open loops, Rootsy Records, Blind Mime open loops, Heuristics Inc. open loops, Mental Anguish free loop project 013, Omnitechnomatrix free loop project 013, B. Laswell, Analog Ind. A dark ambient ride through synthetic textures, frequencies and voices.

12 Eel Eye "Choking"
S.L.I.P. guest artist mix, Mental Anguish Open loops, Blind Mime Open Loops. A sudden inspiration drawing heavily from S.L.I.P.'s loops, and a very sliced & processed Mental Anguish sample.
