BC Studio was founded in 1981 in the desolate and post-industrial (but now rapidly developing) Gowanus section of Brooklyn, by Martin Bisi 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 BC Studio. 

Bisi has since realized albums at BC by Sonic Youth, Swans, John Zorn, Africa Bambaataa, Unsane, JG Thirlwell, Herbie Hancock (Rockit), White Hills, The Dresden Dolls, Fred Frith, US Maple, Boredoms, and countless others.

As an article in Newsweek put it: "Considering how diverse BC Studio's output has been over the years, there's still something recognizable about the music that Bisi lays his hands on."
