MAGNET Television: Q&A With Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans, John Zorn, Bill Laswell, Helmet, Dresden Dolls, White Zombie, Boredoms, Herbie Hancock)

Over the past four decades, producer/engineer/musician Martin Bisi has worked with the likes of Sonic Youth, Swans, John Zorn, Bill Laswell, Helmet, Africa Bambaataa, Dresden Dolls, White Zombie, Fab Five Freddy and Boredoms at his BC Studio in Brooklyn. Aside from some of NYC’s most essential no-wave/art/punk/noise artists, Bisi recorded the first song Whitney Houston ever sang lead on as well as Herbie Hancock’s Grammy-winning “Rockit.” His latest solo album is Solstice (Bronson). Bisi has forgotten more about music than you’ll ever know, but he’ll enthusiastically tell you about what you’re missing out on.
