From 05.05.2022 to 25.05.2022
Studio Cinéma, ECAL

Arto Lindsay is an American artist, guitarist, singer and composer living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A genius of noise with collaboration as his main method, he has been working since the early 2000s on the carnival parade as a gigantic musical instrument. No one can predict in advance what will come out of it, with its mixture of unity and partiality, euphoria and frustration, performance art and celebration.

The installation presented at the ECAL proposes an original development of his previous street parades. With a group of musicians from the bloco Afros of Salvador de Bahia, students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program and programmer Stefan Brunner, Lindsay overturns his own conventions of the parade: inside the ECAL's Studio Cinema, the public can walk through a spiral of loudspeakers broadcasting both the realistic recordings of the percussionists and their thousand distant, confused, probable reflections.
