Presenting a small collection of other languages as interpreted by C. Goff III on several of his 21st Century recordings. Any resemblance between these and any actual languages is strictly coincidental.

For several months after an automobile accident last September, a series of complications related to the crash gradually took away the voice and ability to comfortably move the right arm and shoulder of the mastermind of Taped Rugs Productions, Charles Rice Goff III. By March of this year, Goff had regained much of his lost physical powers and began to focus his energy on making a new solo album of original songs based on melodies that he had dreamed over the last few years. This creation of this album is now in progress.

To celebrate this rebirth of sorts, Taped Rugs Presents this podcast of solo song recordings that Goff has made over the years. The fourth song in this presentation, "Stay," is the first completed piece for the new album (yet unreleased to the public, of course). While "pop" is potentially the genre that many of these pieces could be grouped into, it would be highly uncharacteristic for the Warner Brothers to offer Goff a recording contract after hearing any of them. The last five pieces in this set are all based on melodies that Goff had dreamed. This method of songwriting has been a part of Goff's life since he was very young, and he regards his ability to retain the music that he dreams as a gift from the gods (and he thanks those gods for providing the world with recording technology too!).

Over its 34 years, the Taped Rugs family of artists has grown quite large. This podcast features a few of these bold Carpeteers and some of the rug weaving that they have done during the first years of the 21st Century. Each of the artists included in this set has an extensive discography of his own, and most have considerable artistic families of their own as well. Taped Rugs is quite proud to be in some way associated with all of them. Many more Taped Rugs recordings that feature many more Carpeteers are waiting for you here:

Because the Fab Four first arrived in the USA fifty years ago, television and radio stations have been flooding the airwaves with Beatles documentaries, tribute concerts, trivia contests, etc. Well, a bit longer than twenty-years-ago-today, Taped Rugs Productions started offering homages to this influential pop rock vocal combo. This little collection of recordings documents a bit of that attention. Listeners familiar with Taped Rugs can easily guess what they will be getting in this broadcast, but for those listeners who are unfamiliar, don't expect to be hearing any typical "cover songs." As always, this collection of Taped Rugs recordings has never been offered to the public in this manner before. Taped Rugs makes no claims to the rights of any original Beatles songs nor performances - this show is just for fun, folks, and we hope you dig it. Many more Taped Rugs sounds are waiting for you here:

reDIScovered Disism

Disism =
Charles Rice Goff III +
Killr "Mark" Kaswan

The Disism reDIScovery series was born in 2012, after C. Goff III unearthed several cassette tapes of Disism in-studio improvisations and collages that had been recorded between 1988 and 1995. While a few brief portions of these tapes had been incorporated into Disism's official cassette releases, most of this recorded material had simply remained unheard and forgotten since its creation. To date, five volumes of the reDIScovery series have been created. There will be more. This podcast features recordings from each current volume. The full collection can be downloaded or streamed free of charge here:

In early 1980, Charles Rice Goff III and several of his artistic associates began experimenting with making recordings on a Frippertronics-style tape loop system. The earliest of these tape loop experiments were loosely referred to as products of a project called "-ING." Goff's closest partner in tape loop experimentation was Steve Schaer, and by the end of 1982, the name "-ING" referred specifically to Goff and Schaer as a duo recording/performing act. In 1983, Goff and Schaer spent many hours performing as –ING at night clubs and parties in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, and in other Bay Area cities. Sadly, Schaer took his own life in 1998.

Others who participated in –ING recording projects included Robert Silverman, Dennis Briggs, Gordon Lyon, Jenny Josephian, Killr "Mark" Kaswan, and Vernon Lawton. While archiving -ING recordings in 2008, Goff (living in Kansas) located percussionist Vernon Lawton (living in Washington), and the two began collaborating as a new –ING for the 21st Century.

This presentation offers a tiny sampling of the many recordings produced by –ING. This collection of rarities has never before been offered to the public in this manner. Many more Taped Rugs rarities are waiting for your ears here:
