ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU is made of many heads, voices and noises. In the midst of the lockdown the sound collective, with more than 60 members spread all over the world, started to share sonic fragments, voices and noises online. An incredible dynamic and creative process started in which the musicians have the freedom to use and shape the bits and pieces in the sound pool in their very own way. Until now Alligator Gozaimasu have released six episodes of the album series „Solange bunte Balken durchlaufen“ (engl.: As Long As Render Bars Go Colourful).
Episode #7 was released on 26 February.
Orange ’Ear took the opportunity to present a special release show: Timo C. Engel led us through two hours of interviews, music, poetry and videos. Stephanie Müller (percussionist and songwriter of Beißpony), who created Alligator Gozaimasu with other sound lovers, shed light on the background of her amazing experiences with the XXL band.
The highlight of the show: the experimental Alligator Gozaimasu improvised live together for the first time! For this purpose, Orange ’Ear set up a server where the musicians could meet with minimal latency from different locations around the world. This virtual rehearsal space is kept open for their future collaboration.
