Tapage (Netherlands)

Tijs Ham (aka Tapage) is a musician and sound artist with a background in visual arts, a member of the Soundlings collective and founder of the recordlabel Tapeface. Musically, anything is possible, which is reflected by the broad sonic range of his output. So far Tapage has released several full length albums on the Chicago based recordlabel Tympanik Audio alongside countless e.p’s and compilation appearances on labels such as Meta4 Recordings and Raumklang Music.

In his artworks he applies programming, live-electronics techniques and system design to explore and expand the possibilities of audible expression. Inspired by artificial intelligence, evolutionary processes and machine learning he incorporates these approaches in order to create dynamic structures and experiment with their aesthetic results.
