Three of the projects will be performed that week as well, the bands Hotel of 13 Losses on July 17th, O+O+ on July 18th, and No Signal on July 19th. Posted on June 3, 2019 by aaron. Really excited for my upcoming Stone Residency. Lots of amazing musicians will be there.

Photograph: Peter Varshavsky Aaron Novik. What impresses most about Secrets, which Novik interprets at the Stone this week with the help of a stripped-down ensemble, isn’t so much its diverse palette: swooping strings, the leader’s lithe horn and a dancing doumbek drum, complementing a rhythm section versed in metallic prog. Radical? Sure, but also as gripping as an Indiana Jones adventure.

Composer and clarinetist Aaron Novik with a very limited 2011 record. The record is described on his web site as “an extension of The Mission Outsider Poets Project. This music uses texts/poems from local poets that are marginalized from the mainstream. Michael Bernard Loggins is a poet and writer who is developmentally disabled. His creative use of language and perceptions as a disabled person of color are as unique as they are beautiful and often times silly. Bart Alberti is a autistic savant who committed suicide in 2006. His poetry is highly intellectual and exploits the friction of juxtaposing imagery to create a unique beauty. Swan is a mentally ill homeless man who types leaflets that expound on his belief system, centered on feeding pigeons, rats and other vermin as a holy act.”

Novik has written music for different projects that could be defined as pop songs, chamber classical, psychedelic jazz, gypsy folk, and even heavy metal. Within these obviously disparate stylistic choices are a unifying compositional aesthetic that slowly reveals itself across his projects, and many of which are featured on Floating World. His 2012 album Secret of Secrets was released on John Zorn's Tzadik label.
