MARTIN BISI, a New York indie rock performer and record producer, has been at the crossroads of indie, punk, avant garde, noir/cabaret rock, and electronic music since the early 1980’s in New York City. At the B.C. recording studio he started in 1981 with the help of Brian Eno, MARTIN BISI has helped to realize albums by Sonic Youth, Swans, Dresden Dolls, Cop Shoot Cop, John Zorn, Africa Bambaataa, Material/Bill Laswell, Boredoms, Herbie Hancock’s “Rockit,” White Zombie, Foetus, Helmet, Unsane, Serena Maneesh, U.S. Maple, Christina and Jon Spencer’s Boss Hog, and countless other indie, experimental and post-punk records. His most recent solo album, Ex Nihilo, was released on April 1st, 2014 by La Société Expéditionnaire records.
Watch the trailer for the upcoming documentary on B.C. Studios, Sound and Chaos: The Story of B.C. Studios, here:
The duo INVISIBLE THINGS consists of Mark Shippy (ex-U.S. Maple) and Jim Sykes (ex-Parts and Labor, Grooms), who met in 2008 when they backed Marnie Stern supporting her This is It… album, touring the U.S. with Gang Gang Dance and sharing bills with Quasi, Sic Alps, Talk Normal, and others. After this they began collaborating as a duo, sporadically, as Sykes was touring with Grooms and living in London, but still managed to play Steve Albini’s PRF BBQ and similar such events. INVISIBLE THINGS‘ debut, Home IS the Sun, was released on Porter Records in fall 2012. The new INVISIBLE THINGS album, Time AS One Axis, was recorded by MARTIN BISI (Swans, Sonic Youth, Herbie Hancock) at BC Studios in Brooklyn, New York.
Comprised of electronic drums, keyboards, bass, and effected guitar, VISITING NURSE features long time collaborators Jon Hill, Mike Seymour, and Syd Bishop creating music that seems to somehow straddle the gap between the organic and inorganic, a cyborg pastiche of jazz influenced composition, and rigid structures. For fans of Boards of Canada, Clams Casino, and Biosphere.
