While perhaps not boasting the pedigree of larger, more celebrated musical hotspots, Columbus has its own rich and fiercely original landscape of musical history. This new short, a collaboration between retired Ohio State Professor of Art Mary Jo Bole and the Wexner Center’s own Jerry Dannemiller, assembles fragments from that history. Far from an exhaustive survey of hometown music-makers current and past, the film is more like a visual mixtape that ranges from the jazz and blues of Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Nancy Wilson, and Rusty Bryant to the post-punk, hip-hop and mash-ups of Scrawl, V3, Blueprint, and Evolution Control Committee. Accentuated by Bole’s skewed drawings, it’s a musical love letter and secret street map to a slice of musicians who not only called our city home, but made (and are still making) a beautiful noise. The film screens in conjunction with our music-and-art-spanning exhibition Blues for Smoke. (8 mins., video)
