ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU LP + Download Code
The music and art group ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU was started by the Munich based duo beißpony in 2014. Artists and musicians from Munich, Berlin, Cape Town (South Africa), Ivano Frankivsk (Ukraine), Kailua-Kona (Hawaii), Oxford (UK), São Paulo (Brasilien), Sapporo (Japan) and Tokyo (Japan) are part of the vibrant exchange.
The album consists of 17 tracks which are mostly based on a public recording session which took place at the Import Export. In September 2015 Aoi Swimming from Tokyo was invited to Munich. Together with local residents, musicians, artists and filmmakers she recorded a wide range of experimental sound and text files. Based on these files the art and music group ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU composed 17 album tracks.
Just imagine an amplified tea ceremony with diy punk spirit, no fear of genre boundaries and dissonances and a fierce love for minimal sound experiments.
Each LP comes along with a silk screen printed mask and a "scratch off" download playing card.
It is the first record release on the Munich based underground label RagRec. It is heartily recommend by the British avant-garde magazine WIRE and by ChicksOnSpeed records.
