Arto Lindsay

These have been a busy few days for Arto Lindsay: the guitarist appeared at Studio Coast last Sunday, at the invitation of indie meta-pop stars Sotaisei Riron, then sat in with prog-jazz ensemble Date Course Pentagon Royal Garden at Liquidroom the following night. It says a lot about the breadth of Lindsay's musical pursuits that he could slot comfortably into both settings. Born in the US but raised in Brazil at the peak of the '60s Tropicália movement, he went on to find a sort of fame with NYC no-wave band DNA, later collaborating with the avant-garde likes of John Zorn and Laurie Anderson. However, he's also devoted a significant portion of his career to the sounds of Brazil, even earning a Latin Grammy for his production work on Marisa Monte's 2000 album Memórias, Crônicas e Declarações de Amor. For his first solo date in Tokyo for seven years, Lindsay has invited a guest whose creative output is every bit as varied as his own: guitarist, composer and improv everyman Yoshihide Otomo.
