Born in the USA and raised in Brazil, DNA mastermind Arto Lindsay was an important figure on the brutal no-wave scene of New York from the late 70’s. Renowned for his distinctive fusion of abstract noise, experimental jazz and the grooves of Brazilian tropicália, he has stood at the intersection of music and art for over four decades. Paal Nilssen-Love has been one of the world’s most prolific and active musicians that came out of Norway for the last 20 years. With thousands of gigs and hundreds of recordings the drummer is known for bands like The Thing, OffOnOff, Ballister, Hairy Bones, Chicago Tentet and Large Unit, as well as collaborations with musicians like Ken Vandermark, Jim O’Rourke, Peter Brötzmann, Thurston Moore, Michiyo Yagi and many others. Arto Lindsay and Paal Nilssen-Love played together for the first time in Rio in early July 2013. They met, said hello and performed a hammering 35-minute highly energetic set, with a mix of Brazilian songs, vocals, noisy guitar and hard beating drums going in and out of time. The next meeting was at the Guggenheim Museum in New York and since then they have played Moers Festival, Roskilde Festival, Audio Rebel in Rio de Janeiro again, Big Ears Festival in Knoxville plus more concerts in Europe and elsewhere. Their first concert in Rio was recorded and released on Nilssen-Love´s label PNL records under the name “Scarcity”.
