About Maarten

Maarten is a composer from The Netherlands, best known for his adventurous orchestral music. For The Seven of Daran: The Battle of Pareo Rock, directed by Lourens Blok and recorded with full orchestra and choir, he received a Dutch Golden Calf nomination for Best Music. He also wrote the scores for a number of films based on the popular Carry Slee books, including Lover or Loser and Razend. [IMDb]

Maarten has also composed the scores for numerous animation films, including the much loved Little Quentin (2010) and Paultje en de Draak (2008), both directed by Albert 't Hooft and Paco Vink.

For 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 for the film M.A.N. features bandoneon player 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.

Back in the game!

I am proud to present Sniper on the Second Floor, an orchestral thriller cue featuring live orchestra and a barrage of additional percussion tracks. Enjoy! More music coming in the next few days!

A magical experience

Such a magical experience... 67 people playing all those notes you've worked on so hard! Especially when you're with the orchestra in the room – an opportunity I gladly took a number of times. Very happy! A special thank you to David Christiansen & Peter Pejtsik!

In Budapest for recordings

Exciting! I'm in Budapest this weekend to record new music with the Budapest Scoring Symphony Orchestra. You'll soon be able to listen and watch on this site. Very pretty city, by the way!
