Sound and Chaos is a documentary about the legendary BC Studio, which was co-founded by Martin Bisi and Bill Laswell in Gowanus, Brooklyn, in 1979 with financing from Brian Eno. Artists such as John Zorn, Herbie Hancock, Brian Eno, Sonic Youth, and Afrika Bambaataa all recorded albums and singles at the studio, which has been called a “nexus point” for experimental musicians to exchange “ideas, sounds, and motifs.” Directors Ryan Douglass and Sara Leavitt and Artist Martin Bisi are scheduled
to be present.
