Heuristics Inc. - Live @ Midsummer Night's Germination ..........Buy it from BandCamp
On 17 June 2006, Tapegerm held a live streaming event where members uploaded new loops and then made mixes using those loops. A few members did live sets using the new mixes, and these two tracks represent Heuristics Inc.'s two sets of live music made with the loops and a few live staples. Some songs are completely improvised using the new loops, some are Heuristics Inc. concert classics, and the tracks are presented as they were performed, warts and all. As a bonus when you order the album, I'll add a "behind the music" file that explains the stories behind the tracks.
Includes tracks:
1. Set 1 (29:58)
2. Set 2 (24:44)
