Hometapes makes official the little things in life that define us. We’ve been making things since we were kids, together even then, from every moment we collect. Product architects. Happy just to leave behind something you’ll remember. Hearing and making music, taking pictures, writing something down, designing a page or a package, watching through windows, driving, walking, talking: these are the modest pillars of Hometapes. We engineer products that represent us, our friends/collaborators, and creative everyday life. Sometimes they exceed our expectations and we surely hope they excite yours. Hometapes = music, art, and everything else.
Currently Hometapes is made up of three separate but equal branches: Hometapes, Placetapes, and HAUS (the Hometapes Art and Utility Store).
Hometapes is where you are now. Hometapes is where it all started.
Placetapes was born to allow musical and visual artists a place to collaborate and experiment without the constraints, pressures, and delays of traditional releases. We want to get back to our roots and make things with our own hands late at night on impossible schedules and all for the fun of just doing it. There are no specific rules or guidelines, and all formats are welcome. Limited edition, by default. So, don’t miss it…you’ve been warned.
HAUS has most recently come into existence to allow you to partake of the variety of things that friends and family of Hometapes have created. Everything from original works of art, to Hometapes releases, to magnets for your fridge will be available. Help a starving artist; I’m sure you could find a way to make it tax deductible.
