David Martijn (1980) is best known as the guitar player & electronic musician of the award winning Belgian electro rockband Goose. He spent most of his formative years bent over a pedalboard with a Flying V strapped around his waist before discovering a passion for synthesizers. David is a part of the creative collective Safari Studios, operating from their very own recording studio in his hometown Kortrijk (BE).
David discovered electronic soundscapes when he acquired his first analogue synth by the end of the millenium. Throughout the years, David has become one of Belgium’s most renowned synth enthusiasts. For BOS! Festival he composed a piece based solely on the semi-modular Arp 2600 as a tribute to this legendary synthesizer. The visual arts were always an important inspiration for David’s work. From the cinematic energy in his own musical creations, to his love for experimenting with analogue photography. The latter led to a meeting with Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer. Their shared love for vintage synthesizers resulted in David creating soundscapes for the première of one of Carl’s expositions. These pieces were eventually reworked as the soundtrack for Jimmy Kets’ documentary on Carl’s work ‘OdysSea’. In 2018 David’s career as a film score composer really took off when he was asked to write the score for the prestigious TV series ‘De Dag’. He composed, recorded, produced and mixed every song for this television drama.
