Rogier Telderman (The Netherlands)
Born in Utrecht, Telderman grew up in a world of choral and classical music. He later developed a love for improvisation. For him, composition and improvisation should melt into one another: "music to me is like a living organism". In TRIPTYCH, Telderman explores the
crossover between the two. Mixing acoustic instruments such as trombone, bass clarinet, flute and piano with discreet electronics, TRIPTYCH creates cinematic music with ambient and minimal influences.
