Oort Cloud for saxophone, two accordions and live processing is a proof that complex music, which is extremely demanding to play, does not need to be difficult for the listener. Probably his most appreciated work; Oort Cloud uses the extreme reverberation of a cathedral to deliberately blur the sounds, creating a surround sound ambient experience of highly dissonant chords and harsh timbres. Due to the atmospheric character and the long, floating gesture the harshness is made milder and the music appears as a cosmic state of sound.
