about

Alchymie & Gregg Skloff continue their explorations further into outer sonic space in their new album, The Oort Cloud – a conceptual sequel to their 2016 Aerocade release, The Kuiper Belt.

Taking an ongoing collaboration from studio to stage, pianist/keyboardist Jennifer Theuer Ruzicka (from Naples, FL; operating as Alchymie) and contrabassist Gregg Skloff (from Astoria, OR) presented their debut public duo performance at the 5th annual Sonic Dreams Festival in Waterford, Ireland.

This concert yielded the recordings which make up The Oort Cloud – powerful excursions into the "drone-based ambient electronic music meets experimental new age film score" realms of their earlier work, with the live-in-real-time immediacy adding elements of industrial churn & psychedelic sprawl into the mix.

Astronomer Jan Oort's proposal of a spherical cloud of small objects in distant orbit around the sun has gained acceptance as the zone from which many comets appear to originate. On April 27, 2018 – on the eve of Oort's 118th birth anniversary – Aerocade offers a tribute to his brainchild: Alchymie & Gregg Skloff's The Oort Cloud.
