Alligator Gozaimsu (pronunciation: Alligator Goh-sai-mahs) refers to the Japanese expression Arigato Gozaimasu (English: Thank You Very Much), just with a bity „Alligator“-spice on top



ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU is made of many heads, voices and noises. The sound collective, with about 60 members spread all over the world, is back on the map with their upcoming release: Solange bunte Balken durchlaufen (engl.: As Long As Render Bars Go Colourful). The album title refers to the process of rendering in audio or video editing programmes.
The centerpiece of the XXL band is the experimental pop group beißpony (ChicksOnSpeed Records). In the midst of the lockdown beißpony's (ChicksOnSpeed Records) percussionist and songwriter Stephanie Müller reactivated a music collaboration that had already started in 2014. This spring, step by step, more artists and sound lovers joined in.

During the process of sharing sonic fragments, voices and noises online, the collective decided to try an album in episodes: an album that is open for all the different circumstances and needs of such a large band, an album that celebrates mood swings and listens closely to the different tempi in these days.

The artists

... come from Berlin, Bremerhaven, Horb am Neckar, Munich, Salzburg, Vienna and Zurich, from Phoenix (Arizona, USA), Dakar (Senegal), Istanbul (Turkey), Ivano Frankivsk (Ukraine), Oxford
(UK), Banjul (Gambia), Rome (Italy), Sevilla (Spain), Turku (Finnland) and Tokyo (Japan).

The album * Solange Bunte Balken Durchlaufen * As Long As Render Bars Go Colourful

Something vague is raising its voice inbetween the lines. The second episode consists of 14 songs. They swing along with all the ups and downs of the past weeks and months. The episode celebrates the beauty of delay. Digital interferences and latencies are not edited. Instead they become a mutual part of the collaborative compositions.

The release

Starting in July 2020 sound lovers are heartily invited to enter ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU's sonic cosmos and to join the journey till December 2020. Each month a new release will be shared via bandcamp. All contributions will be donated. This time to Sea Watch e.V..

Enjoy listening *
