Marnix Vinkenborg (1997) is a composer, theatre maker and performer.

He completed his bachelor in electronic music composition and a master's degree in music theatre with idiosyncratic visual projects. 

In PRESSURE COOKER he radically tested the co-working process of artists by locking them up in a barrack. At Over Het Ij Festival he made PENTHOUSE PITCH, a surrealistic plea against gentrification. 

With his alter-ego MARTIN MALIBU, he makes music, performances and films about romance in the 21st century, which have been shown at the Netherlands Film Festival, among others. For music and sound design, see the SOUND DESIGN portfolio.

Marnix takes inspiration from underground pop culture, current events and the emotions of himself and the people who work with him.
