Martin Bisi, Moloq, Naan Violence
For nearly 40 years, Martin Bisi has carved out a singularly avant-garde path behind the recording console, working as a producer, engineer, songwriter, and improviser from his BC Studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn. A long list of seminal underground musicians — Brian Eno, Sonic Youth, Bill Laswell, Herbie Hancock, Fab Five Freddy, John Zorn, Foetus, Unsane, Swans, Cop Shoot Cop, Helmet, and more — have soaked up Bisi’s sonically caustic touch during the most cutting-edge stages of their careers.
As a recording artist, Bisi embraces a more ornate sound and vision that blends layers upon layers of rhythms and textures into his recordings and performances.
Bisi is currently on the road, joined by drummer Dave Miller and keyboard and bass player Dylan Sparrow, giving a nod to two new albums this year, the second volume of the BC35 sessions (released in April), and a new solo album titled Solstice, built around conceptual themes of the "Summer Solstice" and the "Winter Solstice."
For this show, expect a real-time exploration of Bisi’s sound, vision, and legacy. Moloq and Naan Violence also perform.
