  3. Electronic music is created in a social and sometimes even political context. For some time now, my music has been increasingly influenced by the external circumstances of the world we live. In this regard, I would like my work to be understood as an acoustic, musical commentary. Corroded Immunity meets a world in a state of emergency in the context of a biological as well as medical crisis caused by a pandemic. But it is also a observation of how we as a society deal with this threat. Therefore, this album has three parts (or three tracks) that represent different perceived levels of threat. The first piece is a distant, rather global mood caused by the increasing threat of the crisis, the second piece expresses the own restriction or isolation in succession. The last and shortest piece is the immediate outbreak on the spot.

  5. Artificial was originally released in 2011 as an MP3 collection of 16 tracks produced between 2009 and 2011. What I did not realize at the time was this album began my interest in composing what I now think of as thematic sound paintings between music and noise. What would eventually lead to the creation of a label for this kind of music called Aural Films. EMjoy these re-mastered tracks now available in full 16-bit fidelity.

  9. Aural Films present a brand new album by Mike Honeycutt, Jack Hertz, and Bob. The MHZ boys are throwing a Xmas party in the Black Lodge, and you are invited to partake in brand new collection of electronic, post-concrete works dedicated to Mark Frost and David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" with a heaping helping of Slack thrown in for all you SubGeniuses out there.
  10. Blackouts is a collection of new works inspired by and composed during the recent events in Northern California. This album is dedicated to all who face the strange calamity of depending on companies that put us in harms way without recourse. There is s certain irony in an electronic music album about the rolling blackouts in California. When electricity was shut off with little warning, people in cities, towns, and all walks of life were left in the dark with only the excuse that Pacific Gas & Electric didn't want to be liable for another wild fire. In the time since, we have learned a lot about our reliance on them and how powerless we are, in both senses of the word.
  11. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” ― Carl Gustav Jung The first two compositions are darker while the last one brings more lightness, the one that is offered when life returns. 1. Incantations How to emerge from the cleavage duality by accepting opposites as true each one seen in the totality they constitute. No feminine without masculine, no evil without good, no noise without silence, no day without night. A dynamic wholeness, witness of itself and which cannot be reduced to synthesis or unity. 2. Incandescence Rubbing against the dark matter to find a transfigured light 3. Initiations The last piece is a live recording of music composed for choreography. It is made up of several motifs that offered a guideline for dancers who had no other instructions than to let themselves be carried away by the musical proposal, hence the notion of an initiatory journey that spawned coherence in the unknown.

  22. Since the 1970's, Charles Rice Goff III has been producing unique audio, visual, and literary art. While nearly all of this art has been made public through Goff’s own Taped Rugs Productions label over the years, much of it also has been released by other producers located throughout five continents. Goff has collaborated with 100's of artists around the world as well, taking an active roll as a member of the world-wide avant garde community. The collection of recordings in this biographical set focuses primarily on Goff's audio collaborations. Listeners interested in Goff's large quantity of purely solo works, or in his visual or literary productions, can find many of them available on the internet at archive.org. The Taped Rugs website at www.tapedrugs.com offers several menus to help locate specific works as well. BIOGRAPHY DISC 1: MAGNETIC ROOTS Tracks 1 - 10 MAGNETIC ROOTS provides listeners with samples of Goff’s collaborative work created on magnetic tape in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Goff was a member of four recording/performing projects during that time. -Ing, Disism, and Herd Of The Ether Space were all based in the East San Francisco Bay Area. Turkey Makes Me Sleepy was formed when Goff moved to Lawrence, Kansas, in the mid 1990’s. Each of these four projects incorporated a wide variety of instruments, non instruments, genres, and non-genres into their recordings and performances. Improvisation, sound collage, social commentary, and humor are elements common to the productions of all of these groups. One thing in particular that also makes each of these groups a genuine contributor to the unique Taped Rugs family of artists is that they all incorporated tape recorders as instruments - looping, editing, and manipulating recording tape to create one-of-a-kind sounds. Membership in each of these groups centered around a small core of individuals, but often other artists took part of their activities. Each of these groups also produced several very lengthy recordings, which could not be presented here because of limited space. Listeners interested in further exploring the recordings of these groups can find many of them available online at archive.org. BIOGRAPHY DISC 2: DIGITAL SCULPTURE Tracks 11 - 32 DIGITAL SCULPTURE provides listeners with samples of Goff's collaborative experimental work created with computer software. Goff made contacts with artists all over the world during the 1980's and 1990's by exchanging cassette tapes through the post. As the 20th Century was ending, digital technologies began providing artists with new methods for recording and editing sounds. The ever-evolving internet also provided artists with a new and speedy pathway for communications and exchanges of recordings. Goff took advantage of these new technologies to increase his collaboratating activities with associates around the globe, producing sonic sculptures by digitally collaging and embellishing the recordings of others with his own. His history with tape manipulation and improvisation influenced his approaches to stretching the normal parameters of digital recording as well, resulting in a wide variety of one-of-a-kind productions. DIGITAL SCULPTURE showcases only a sampling of the artists with whom Goff has produced unique digitally-engineered recordings over the years. He has co-created several very lengthy recordings as well, which could not be presented in this collection because of limited space. Listeners who are interested in hearing Goff's longer collaborative works and/or his collaborations with other sound artists can find many of them online at archive.org. BIOGRAPHY DISC 3: PAINTING WITH VOICES Tracks 33 - 54 Since the 1970's, Charles Rice Goff III has been producing unique audio, visual, and literary art. While nearly all of this art has been made public through Goff’s own Taped Rugs Productions label over the years, much of it also has been released by other producers located throughout five continents. Goff has collaborated with 100's of artists around the world as well, taking an active roll as a member of the world-wide avant garde community. The collection of recordings in this biographical set focuses primarily on Goff's audio collaborations. Listeners interested in Goff's large quantity of purely solo works, or in his visual or literary productions, can find many of them available on the internet at archive.org. The Taped Rugs website at www.tapedrugs.com offers several menus to help locate specific works as well. PAINTING WITH VOICES provides listeners with samples of Goff's "songwriting." These recordings contain familiar song elements such as melodies, refrains, lyrics, etc. However, the arrangements, choices of instruments, embellishments with sounds not normally considered musical, etc., make these pieces uniquely Goff's. Many of the melodies and lyrics in these songs were dreamed in his sleep. Also, as the title suggests, Goff sings on each of these recordings. PAINTING WITH VOICES features several collaborations with other artists; however, this collection also contains some pieces completely composed, performed, and produced by Goff alone. Goff's musical influences stretch to all edges of genre and beyond. Each of his songs has a life of its own, and, thus, projects a style and other qualities that are particularly applicable to it. As with the recordings on the other two discs in this collection, sound collage, improvisation, social commentary, humor, and unique recording techniques are all showcased in this collection. While not well represented here, it should be noted that Goff also has recorded many interpretations of songs written by other artists. His approach to these interpretations generally produces recordings that range very far from their original designs. Also, while Goff recorded quite a few songs on magnetic tape during the 20th Century, this collection only features digitally recorded songs from the 21st Century. Listeners interested in hearing his tape-recorded songs or his "cover songs" can find many of them online at archive.org.
