ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU – Duet of Amplified Musical Sewing Machines, 22th.
ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU is an experimental art and music exchange composed of underground artists from Germany, South Africa, Ukraine, Brazil, the US, the UK and Japan. Stephanie Müller and Lisa Simpson aka Agente Costura constitute the core of the art and music collective. Lisa Simpson has been playing the Singer, an amplified musical sewing machine, since 2003. The Brazilian artist graduated at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design (Vancouver, Canada). By transforming wardrobes Lisa is bringing forth a discussion around the sustainability of the fashion industry. She currently lives and works in Berlin. Stephanie Müller is a visual artist and sociological researcher with a fierce love for experiments and improvisation. Together with Laura Theis, an Oxford based songwriter with a background in theater and literature, she initiated the experimental music project beißpony. In 2013 their debut album was released on Chicks On Speed Records. In winter 2014 Stephanie met the Berlin based artist and musician Lisa Simpson aka Agente Costura for the very first time. Since then they have been performing together with a duet of amplified musical sewing machines. This September their collaborative album „Alligator Gozaimasu“ will be released on RagRec. Just imagine an amplified tea ceremony with diy punk spirit and a fierce love for minimal sound experiments.
It was a great show! Thx a bunch to the artists La Bernadette (Vienna), Lisa Simpson (Berlin, São Paulo), Rag Treasure (Munich) and the audience to celebrate this beautiful evening with us!
