Arto Lindsay (born May 28, 1953, Richmond, Virginia) is an American guitarist, singer, record producer and experimental composer. He's probably best known as a founding member of the influential no wave band DNA, though his work after DNA has been quite prolific. He has a distinctive soft voice and an often noisy, self-taught guitar style comprised almost entirely of extended techniques, described by Brian Olewnick "studiedly naïve ... sounding like the bastard child of Derek Bailey"; his guitar work is contrasted frequently with gentler, sensuous Brazilian music themes.
Chorus se narodil 15. února 1991 v jihomoravském Kyjově. Muzice se věnuje přibližně od roku 2004, kdy zkoušel poprvé tvořit instrumentální hudbu. Začínal tvorbou v softwaru Reason 2, zkoušel vytvářet beaty a vkládat do nich samplované melodie. To ho po čase omrzelo a tak začal obohacovat svá instra i rapem. Založil tenkrát bezejmenou skupinu s podobně smýšlejícím chlapíkem, jenže ve dvojici jim to neklapalo, a tak se Chorus pustil po své cestě za hudbou zase sólo. Sám i rapoval.
