The Black MIDI Team (commonly referred to as the BMT) is a group of YouTubers and non-YouTubers who compose Black MIDIs. The team has been in operation for a couple years and steadily moved up in notoriety.

The Black MIDI Team was founded by TheTrustedComputer and TheSuperMarioBros2 around 2012. Since its inception, people periodically join the team. It is important to mention that there are many black MIDI video makers that are in the community, just not in the team, who upload sporadically.

Note that there are much more people participating in the Black MIDI Community and that the team is not the central authority to the genre. Most, but not all of them, are fans of black MIDIs.


In 2015, when Gingeas became leader, he depreciated part of the rank system and started a new branch system for the BMT

The BMT currently have 3 branches as of today

  • BMT-S: This branch is composed by leaders and all high ranked members
  • BMT-A: The main BMT branch, is composed by all the BMT Members
  • BMT-N: The newcomers branch, they are not really BMT Members, but

Depreciated branches/ranks:

  • Low level Member: Limited BMT member rank, people who joined the BMT recently started with this rank, some members, notably Gingeas didn't like the idea and this rank got depreciated by the current BMT-N branch in 2015


The BMT currently have 28 members in total. 26 of them are active.

In total, 42 members overall have once joined the BMT but 14 of them have left or been banned.
