JacobTV on the Radio: What Is It?

A 5-Day Festival of Discoveries and Insights

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

From Wednesday, March 17 to Sunday, March 21, Q2 presents JacobTV on the Radio: a 5-day immersion into the life and music of JacobTV.

The festival features a kaleidoscope of rare and never-before-heard recordings, including: the recent premiere of Piano Concerto No.2, "Sky Falling," limited-time download of his break-through Grab it!, piece introductions from JacobTV as DJ, shocking and beautiful video art including a first draft preview of his video opera, The News and on-demand streaming audio of the March 11 New Sounds Live: Ethel Plays JacobTV.

Q2 is eager to continue its festival profiles of 20th and 21st century titans of new music with this festival celebrating the music of Dutch avant-pop composer, JacobTV. Building upon the success of Maximum Reich, JacobTV on the Radio aims to harness the potential of internet radio to provide a sonic, textual and visual portrait of one of today’s most innovative and forward-thinking artists.

jacob-tv on Q2 radio = paradise

ground was well-prepared for paradiso w/ this week's focus on passions.

having already heard a number of these pieces, they have taken on new meaning in the context of the composer's spoken introductions.

however, couldn't access wqxr.org all last night, 'tho the audio stream continued. ( i wonder : might the on-demand feeds stay up for a couple weeks after this j-tv fest ... ¿ please ? ... )

( will this bliss never end )

You know what's so funny, I am from the Netherlands, as Jacob Ter veldhuis, moved here a few years ago, and almost 30 years ago he was my music teacher!
He was very funny and renewing in his lessons by then, but never thought he would get that famous...
