Alligator:Go! is a festival for experimental music and art More than 30 musicians* and artists* from Munich and other places, cities and countries that were already connected online will come together offline for the first time from August 13-15. The open-air stage of IMPORT EXPORT offers space for improvised music. Electronic music reinterpreted with medical meters, dulcimer and cello, queer dream-pop and contemporary vocal performance mix up the raucous noise mantra – „in doubt for the contradiction“. Professional musicians* and artists* who never tire of experimenting further collaborate with people who have only recently discovered playing and producing together.
The Alligator:Go! festival wants to make you want to look beyond your own borders and explore future forms of collectivity and community together. What possibilities will open up when artists and musicians join together again offline? Is it time to unlearn familiar forms of encounter and try out something new? Right next to the IMPORT EXPORT open space, in the adjacent MUCCA Halle, the Munich based projects will built a modular spatial installation: over the course of the festival, it will become a shell for self-built music, a repository for sketchy sound notes, a projection surface for visuals, and a streaming interface.
Based out of and , the Alligator:Go! festival wants to spin temporary webs in the surroundings of Neuhausen and Schwabing West. Thus, in addition to the program on the festival grounds, a sound walk in the neighborhood is also planned.
With all the anticipation of playing and researching together in presence, the interface to the world is still to be considered. Thus, all those who cannot be present on site can take part through watching the streaming sessions.
