New Speech-Based Music

For this New Sounds, sample some new music from Holland, featuring JacobTV, the controversial ex-rock musician who has become one of the Continent’s most exciting composers.  His works incorporate the sounds of American mass media and pop culture as well as acoustic instruments.

An outlaw in the established modern classical music scene, Dutch avant-pop composer JacobTV (Jacob Ter Veldhuis) is also one of the most performed European composers.  He strives to liberate new music from its isolation by spurning dissonance – and he has no objection to a piece being entertaining.
