The objective of the Toon Martens Project
is to create music which is - and remains – interesting
for us to play (and hopefully also for you to listen to)

We tend to get bored easily,
so we like music which is interesting in terms of:
- Style: although our main influence is classic progressive rock,
we like to mix different styles – also within the same song
- Instrumentation: yes we like the classic progressive rock sounds
(acoustic and electric pianos, hammond, mellotron, minimoog,...)
but we also use some other textures
- Rhythm: why only use 4/4 ? there are so many other possibilities
- Harmony: why only use 3 chords in one song ?
- Dynamics: most music nowadays is heavily compressed so it constantly
sounds “loud”. We prefer keeping natural dynamics
