Sound and Chaos: The Story of BC Studio

When the underground music scene was bubbling under the weight of commercial pop music Martin Bisi helped set-up a studio that encompassed his vision of a creative space where the sound was paramount rather than the visualisation of the increasing influence of the music video.

With the financial backing of Brian Eno who worked on his album On Land at this newly formed recording space called BC Studio in Brooklyn, New York.

Another important person who helped to form BC Studio was music producer Bill Laswell.

If you think that BC Studio would-be something catering for the underground; strange noises of advant-garde sounds or loud brash punk-rock, you will be surprised that legendary keyboardist Hebbie Hancock recorded his hit Rockit at BC Studio.

Even Africa Bambaataa laid-down his roots through BC Studio.

Though other acts to record there under the direction of Martin Bisi and Bill Laswell were Sonic Youth, John Zorn, White Zombie, Boss Hog and countless others.

Something we forget in the modern digital age is the fact that BC Studio became the music studio in Brooklyn and afar to cut ones teeth, though this took many frustrating years. The outcome however was the making of Martin Bisi and Bill Laswell as well respected music producers, who were both to become quite simply ahead of their times.

Martin Bisi and Bill Laswell are musicians in their own right and continue to not only produce and record music of artists and bands, but actually record their own music and play live throughout the year.
