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.
