TA014 | Tapage: The Institute Of Random Events

Tapage began as an axe-grinder for a short-lived metal/hip-hop band in the Netherlands. He soon departed from his roots when introduced to tracker programming and began developing electronic beats and fusing guitar with synthetic sounds. It wasn’t long before Tapage started formulating his own style, experimenting with the vast possibilities of electronic sound manipulation.

Inspired by IDM and Breakcore legends like Venetian Snares, Gridlock, and Somatic Responses, as well as Post-Rock and Avant-Garde composers, Tapage continues with his vision to merge complicated, harsh rhythms with dream-like atmospheres to create a unique dynamic that is virtually impossible to ignore.

Now, Tapage joins the ranks of innovative electronic music composers in the Tympanik Audio artist roster to release his debut full-length CD ‘The Institute Of Random Events’.

Combining glitch-tech beats with entrancing atmospheres and serendipitous melodies, ‘The Institute Of Random Events‘ will captivate your awareness and lure you in for a mysterious and complex aural expedition.

A distinctive futuristic vision of electronic music possibilities.
