Scheuer Auditorium

Inspired by Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist, exhibition artist Arto Lindsay performs live music echoing themes of cultural cross-pollination and experimentation, breaking down distinctions between American and Brazilian rock music, pop music, experimental music, and improvisation.

Listen to Butterflies, Molasses (2016) a soundscape created in response to the landscape designs of Burle Marx, exploring aspects of shaping, patterning, and movement.

Arto Lindsay 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. Throughout his career, Lindsay has collaborated with both visual and musical artists, including Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, Animal Collective, Matthew Barney, Caetano Veloso and  Rirkrit Tiravanija.
