From the OSU Urban Arts Space website:
This month's Marotta Hour is a meeting of three of Columbus's better known improvisers and collaborators: Ryan Jewell (percussion), Mike Shiflet (electronics), and series curator Larry Marotta (guitar). Ryan Jewell is constantly challenging expectations of what drums are supposed to sound like. Mike Shiflet's musical journey has brought him from punk rock through noise through a new synthesis of electronics and melody. Larry Marotta will be a featured performer at the Wexner Center's summer Kinema Japan series, providing a live score for the Yasujiro Ozu silent film "I Was Born, But" on July 28.
About Marotta Hour
Marotta Hour is an electro-acoustic music series featuring unexpected sounds from free jazz to electronic to free-form improvisation. Come hear some of the most cutting-edge musicians and composers from Columbus and beyond.
