How the Form Forms Itself. Recent Developments in the Work of Composer JacobTV
(Emile Wennekes) The Low Countries - 2009, № 17, pp. 147-151
Over the course of music history, the 'forma formata' has achieved supremacy. JacobTV's current work calls this into question. His ‘Grab it!' is not a composition in the traditional sense; it is more of a performative concept. Ter Veldhuis thusly aligns himself with the true innovators from musical history. Whereas a groundbreaking composer such as Luciano Berio repeatedly enriched the virtuoso solo performance in his 'Sequenzas', Ter Veldhuis is now augmenting music with an adaptive format, like an artist who chooses to depict the same landscape in pencil, oil paint, watercolours, pastel, photographs or video. Reproducing the same image in a variety of materials can suddenly create new dimensions with many different meanings.
