about

MetaQuorum is a ground-breaking new music project by Russian born composer/keyboardist Dmitry Ermakov whose off-the-wall style is set to stretch the definition of traditional jazz fusion.
Ermakov takes the best of funk, grunge, jazz, rock, neo-baroque, electronica, reggae etc., shakes it up a little, grafts it onto the matrix of various musical forms, including even classical sonata, and then adds a dash of swing and a good sprinkling of humour to create his own unique heady cocktail which he calls structural fusion.

DMITRY ERMAKOV
Ermakov began studying piano at six. At seven he entered the St. Petersburg State Capella where he majored in classical piano, composition, harmony and conducting, later going on to study sax, piano and improvisation in the Jazz Faculty, Mussorgsky Music College. Throughout the 80’s and early 90’s, Ermakov moved in the Soviet underground rock, rhythm and blues, and jazz-funk-rock fusion scene, gigging and recording with various musicians as well as composing/recording for Lenfilm cinema studios and the clown troupe Licedei. In 1993 he emigrated to the UK where he has been composing and recording in his home studio.

KOOS VAN DER VELDE
In November 2014, drummer Koos van der Velde joined the MetaQuorum project. Van der Velde began drumming at the age of six and joined his first metal band, Lunacy, at thirteen, later going on to play with jazz-core band Megakronkel, with whom he toured extensively. Over the last 25 years, van der Velde has gigged and recorded for a variety of bands and artists from all over the world.
