Off The Page Oslo 2015:
Arto Lindsay (b. 1953) is an American guitarist and experimental composer based between Rio, Berlin and New York whose signature combination of velvet voice and noise guitar is an energetic hybrid of post punk, free jazz and Tropicalia styles. He has stood at the intersection of music and art for more than four decades. As a member of DNA, he contributed to the foundation of No Wave.
As bandleader for the Ambitious Lovers he developed an intensely subversive pop music, a hybrid of American and Brazilian styles. He contributed to groups such as The Flying Lizards and the Golden Paliminoes and has collaborated with both visual and musical artists, including Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn, Animal Collective, Matthew Barney, David Byrne, Caetano Veloso, Rirkrit Tiravanija and many others.
