Biography

Maarten is a composer from The Netherlands, best known for his adventurous film scores and diverse concert works. For his film score for The Seven of Daran: The Battle of Pareo Rock, recorded with full orchestra and choir, he received a Dutch Golden Calf nomination for Best Music. He also composed the scores for numerous animation films, including the much beloved Little Quentin and Paultje en de Draak.

Commissioned by the Gelders Fanfare Orchestra, Maarten composed the cosmic work To Vega and Back, which has since been performed by numerous ensembles at concerts and competitions. Maarten's cinematic Tango de La Venganza features bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof and was later arranged and performed by the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Maarten is also creative director of ProjectSAM Cinematic Sampling, which develops virtual instruments for the professional scoring industry. ProjectSAM's sounds are sold world-wide and can be heard in the biggest films, television shows and games.
