About Jacob Ter Veldhuis

Jacob ter Veldhuis (born 14 November 1951), also known as Jacob TV, is a Dutch avant-garde classical composer, born in Westerlee. Ter Veldhuis favors tonal, melodic compositions: ‘I pepper my music with sugar,’ he says. Many of his works build melodies around samples of the human voice, as in Steve Reich's composition 'Different Trains'. Some of his works have been performed by the New York string quartet ETHEL.

Significant works

  • Heartbreakers (1999)-- based on samples from American television talk shows
  • Paradiso (2001)-- video oratorio, 72 minutes, based on Dante's Paradiso
  • Grab It! (1999)-- for tenor saxophone and soundtrack, based on samples from the documentary 'Scared Straight.'
