Drone-based ambient electronic music meets experimental new age film score in this recording project between keyboardist/vocalist/composer Jennifer Theuer Ruzicka (aka Alchymie) from Naples, Florida, and contrabassist/improviser Gregg Skloff from Astoria, Oregon.
In late 2013, Gregg Skloff made the acquaintance of Jennifer Theuer Ruzicka & her musical project Alchymie. Initiated in January 2015, and over a year in the making, their collaboration The Kuiper Belt seeks to evoke our Solar System's far reaches beyond the planets. Alchymie's richly detailed arrangements envelop Gregg Skloff's majestic contrabass tones in atmospheres of grandeur, by turns both ominous and serene.
