C.R. of Baneemy writes: "Leukemia has waged an unsolicited war against my dear friend Fred Clark, and I am asking all of my musician/composer/engineer/producer/song writer friends to watch this video of Fred playing his guitar, and send good vibes his way. If you have the means, please donate to his fund and/or attend the Benefit Concert for Fred on November 15, (changed from Nov 16), in Stamford, CT."

Thanks

Holger Czukay (born Holger Schόring24 March 1938) is a German musician, probably best known as a co-founder of the krautrock group Can. Described by critic Jason Ankeny as successfully bridging the gap between pop and the avant-garde, Czukay is also notable for creating early important examples of ambient music, for exploring "world music" well before the term was coined, and for being a pioneer of sampling.

Tapegerm is gathering another big Free Loop Pack and you're invited to contribute! Just put together 10 or more audio source files (Tapegerm leans toward the experimental so any kind of sound is OK). Then just tell them where to grab your sounds.

See the Tapegerm blog for more information.
