Martin Fabricius is a Danish vibraphonist and film composer. He 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 Ed Saindon and multi grammy award winner Gary Burton.

Building on the legacy of Gary Burton and his pianistic 4-mallet approach, Martin is considered a leading exponent of a new generation of vibraphone players, exploring the use of electronics, new repertoire and inventing new playing techniques in the quest of expanding the expressive possibilities of his instrument. Martin’s music has by many been described as calm, image invoking Nordic jazz. His trio albums has received international critical acclaim – including 5 of 5 star reviews in All About Jazz and JazzThetik and they have become one of the most played jazz bands on Danish National Radio. He has toured Europe, Asia, Africa and the U.S..

Martin Fabricius is also a sought after guest soloist and sideman and has played with legendary trumpet player Tomasz Stanko, Steve Swallow, Lew Soloff and Ornettes Colemans Prime Time bass player Jamaaladeen Tacuma.

Martin lives in Copenhagen Denmark where he teaches percussion, composition and film- scoring when not touring. In his spare time he enjoys nature and the practice of Taoist Tai Chi.
