Jeroen Elfferich (1965- ) is a Dutch composer/musician. He studied percussion at the Rotterdam Conservatorium and played with many bands and orchestras. After graduating he formed his jazz group Elfferich Four with which he recorded 4 albums. All compositions of this band were by Elfferich.
Elfferich has also recorded many electronic music and performed as a live looper at festivals and on national television.
In his late 40ties he decided to dedicate himself to writing minimal music for 2 pianos. He released 4 albums with a label from New York ( Arabesque Records). Elfferich’s music is a new kind of minimal music with an emphasis on rhythms in different time signatures, which makes his music hypnotic and groovy.
His latest series of compositions is called THE ESSENCE. It’s all about space and the use of very few notes. The style is more ambient than most of his rhythmic pieces.
