Tijs Ham (aka Tapage) is a musician and sound artist with a background in visual arts and founder of the recordlabel Tapeface. Musically, anything is possible, which is reflected by the broad sonic range of his output. So far he has released several full length albums on the Chicago based record label Tympanik Audio alongside countless e.p’s and compilation appearances. 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, chaos, evolutionary processes and machine learning he incorporates similar approaches in order to create dynamic structures and experiment with their aesthetic results. Currently he works at STEIM curating workshops and concerts.
