Oort Cloud is Jexper Holmen's (b. 1971) remarkable breakthrough work commissioned by the Huddersfield Festival for Contemporary Music. The work's title refers to the cloud of comets believed to surround the solar system a light-year away from here. Holmen describes his own music as extremely slow and relentless, not unlike a cosmic disaster". In this world premiere recording, Oort Cloud unfolds a 1-track, 1-hour cloud of sound, also emcompassing the work CosmygyralEcho by Martin Stig Andersen as a distant reverberation.
