Never one to limit himself, Aaron Novik is set to unveil five EPs’ worth of material that have been incubating amidst the bass clarinetist’s myriad musical involvements, which include Fred Frith’s Gravity band, his own ensembles No Signal, O+O+, Dante Counterstamp, and his comic book/album series Frowny Frown. 

With plans to release all five titles between late summer and the end of the year, Novik kicks off the EP series with a July residency at John Zorn’s experimental nonprofit venue The Stone, along with a full-length compilation of material that spans the whole set, titled The Fallow Curves of the Planospheres, out digitally and on cd on July 19th and available at the shows.
