Jacob ter Veldhuis (1951) started his career in rock music and
studied at the Groningen Conservatory where he was awarded the
Dutch Composition Prize in 1980. Breaking through in the
mid-eighties with harmonious compositions straight from the heart
and averse to intellectual concepts or complex techniques of a
worn-out avant-garde, he writes effectful music which pleases the ear
without ever becoming too sweet or indolent. From his past as a rock
musician he kept his interest in sound and a lively stage presentation as
means of expression.He is a virtuoso in using electronics and
involves items like the Gulf War, Chet Baker or the Jerry Springer
Show by sampling techniques. Still a controversial figure amongst
some established exponents of Dutch musical life, he has become one of
the most successful composers of the Netherlands today. Ter
Veldhuis wrote orchestral, chamber and electronic music as well as
music for film, theatre and ballet. His music is worldwide performed
and has been recorded on a great many CDs like Emergo Classics,
Chandos, BVHaast, Globe, and Ottavo. Recently he received
nominations from the UNESCO International Rostrum of
Composers, the Ars Electronica Linz and Bourges Electronic
Highly expressive and emotional,almost anti-intellectual
music,clear of texture and architectural in form, highly organised and basically tonal, though betraying no
inclination towards any neo-classical procedures. A kind of non-repetitive minimalism, brooding
and powerful. (Records International)
