Upcoming Events at Grand Illusion

Green star Martin Bisi

Fri Oct 24.

All-ages!

Martin Bisi’s one of those important figures whose name you should know, but probably don’t—unless you scrutinize the credits of records by cult musicians like Swans, John Zorn, Boredoms, and Material. (He’s also worked with bigger acts like Sonic Youth, Dresden Dolls, and Helmet, and recorded Herbie Hancock’s paradigm-shifting hit “Rockit.”) The man’s a production wizard and a canny musician himself. His latest full-length, Ex Nihilo, is plenty strange, featuring eerie, operatic vocals and prog-rock and post-punk song structures that don’t so much color outside the lines as they do obliterate them. Moments of Jesus Christ Superstar–like exultation exist alongside passages of unsettling chaos, sometimes sounding like three different groups playing on a revolving stage. You can learn all about his exploits tonight via the documentary film about Bisi titled Sound and Chaos. DAVE SEGAL
