About the album
Aaron Novik is a remarkable clarinetist/composer/illustrator who is based in the San Francisco Bay Area. His latest project features some of the greatest musicians out of the Bay Area music scene, including Fred Frith, Ben Goldberg and Carla Kihlstedt. Combining Jewish gematria with contemporary classical compositional techniques he has created a strikingly original reading of Kabbalah. Divided into five sections this suite of music contains elements of rock, classical, improvisation and world music, all masterfully blended into a new and personal musical universe.
