osmic Diaspora features Jake Marmer (poetry), John Schott (guitars), and Joshua Horowitz (keys/accordion). The project brings together experimental poetry, jazz, and klezmer in eclectic, fluid, and improvised manner. Science fiction, Jewish mysticism...exilic and immigrant experience, myth and ritual all come together in heady and playful admixtures.

Marmer's work was hailed as a “soulful narrative line in counterpoint to … language-drunk abstractions” (The Jewish Week), “experience of mystic pleasures … freshly contemporary” (Shofar), & a “thought provoking debut” (All About Jazz).


John Schott  (Grammy-nominated, John Zorn, Tom Waits, Ledisi, Peter Apfelbaum, Rova Sax Quartet, Paul Dresher Ensemble...)

Joshua Horowitz (Itzhak Perlman, Theodore Bikel, The Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Frank London, Budowitz, Veretski Pass,..)"
