—  first words on the sound installation —

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 from which no one can predict in advance what will come out, with its mixture of unity and partiality, euphoria and frustration, artistic performance and party.

The installation presented at the ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne 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.

The installation will result from a one week workshop. Lindsay, Brunner and the students will work on the spatialization of the percussion recordings with MaxMSP through 30 speakers. And the independant researcher, writer and artist Juliette Volcler will propose to students and Lindsay to listen to the installation collectively and critically in order to transform it or/and to question it.
