BC35 refers to the weekend of performances and resulting album
making the 35 year anniversary of BC Studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
Musicians spanning the history of the studio were grouped into ensembles
mostly improvisational, although there was new material written
specifically for the occasion— and performed and recorded live before
an audience of BC Studio supporters and members.
There were also some long-awaited reunions.
Recorded with a live audience comprised of sound pioneers, social
deviants, and studio fans, these tracks were mixed and edited with care
over several month by Martin Bisi and by veterans of the studio
throughout the decades.
The results were compiled into Volumes 1 and 2, this is the second
chapter that will be released on April 19, one year after the first one.
Martin Bisi founded BC Studio in 1981 in the desolate and post-industrial
(but now rapidly developing) Gowanus section of Brooklyn, along
with Bill Laswell, and with financial and technical help from Brian Eno.
Eno’s record On Land (released 1982) was the first recorded session at
Bisi has since realized albums at BC Studio by Sonic Youth, Swans, Joh
Zorn, Africa Bambaataa, Unsane, Cop Shoot Cop, Herbie Hancock’s
Rockit, White Hills, Serena Maneesh, Violent Femmes, Foetus, The
Dresden Dolls, Pop 1280 (Sacred Bones), Fred Frith, Wrekmeister
Harmonies (Thrill Jockey), US Maple, Boredoms, Boss Hog (w/ Jon
Spencer), and countless others.
