Vyacheslav Potapov (VP) Aaron Novik, this album once again proves, how this composer can be diverse. I had known about this musician just because he writes good music in a jazz style. In this album of jazz a little, more audible sound experiments. A lot of avant-garde. The album is more rock. I think Aaron Novik worthy successor of the great John Zorn!

about

My second record was recorded in one day and edited by John Finkbeiner over about half a year. Finally it was mixed by Eli Crews and Sep Valizdeh, and mastered by John Greenham. All the artwork was done by my friend Mark Wilson.
