Martin Fabricius is a Danish vibraphonist and film composer. His music has by many been described as image creating, story telling, beautiful and even healing. The calm melodies and friendly harmonies invites the listener inside the music which at times resembles classical or electronic music. All of this mixed with intriguing rhythms and lot’s of improvisation makes the music both calm and energetic, grand and intimate.
Martin Fabricius graduated Suma Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music with a major in film scoring in 1996. While at Berklee, Martin studied the vibraphone with multi grammy award winner Gary Burton. His first album as a bandleader and vibraphonist When Sharks Bite (2008), was hailed by JazzNyt, as one of the 10 best Danish albums that year. Since then the trio has performed all over the world attracting a growing audience of listeners both familiar and new to jazz.
Martin lives in Copenhagen Denmark where he teaches percussion, composition and film scoring when not touring.
All concerts are recorded live to be aired at a later date on WPPB, your local NPR Station.
*Doors will open at 6:30 PM for sangria and small bites compliments Union Cantina plus Wölffer Estate Vineyard rosé.
