Maarten van der Vleuten (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈmaːrtə(n) vɐn dɛr ˈvløːtə(n)]) is a Dutch producer, composer and recording artist born in Vught, The Netherlands in 1967. Between 1987 and 2007 he used over two dozens of aliases, producing Detroit techno, electro, house, experimental and ambient music. In early 2008 he announced that he would only use his real name for future releases. He recorded for R&S Records, Outrage Recordings, Apollo Records (Belgium), Djax-Up-Beats, See Saw, ESP and Klang Elektronik to name just a few. Since 1996 he is also releasing music on his own label Signum Recordings (and its two sublabels Passiflora and Glam). Maarten's musical vision knows no limits: working in his own studio, he's constantly experimenting and exploring all aspects of (danceable) music, looking for innovation and bringing new angles to it. Due to his experimental vision towards his music, Van Der Vleuten's productions are not mainstream material. As a result of that he has gained more credits from within the "underground" scene. Or as the database of the Dutch Rock & Pop Institute writes; "one of the pioneers of the dutch dance scene".[1]

"In-Existence"[2] is the alias van der Vleuten uses for his ambient-related musical projects. In 1993 the debut album Moonwater by In-Existence was released on the ambient label Apollo Records (Belgium), a subsidiary of R&S Records. (Musically a mix between Detroit techno and ambient) On Van Der Vleuten's own label Signum Recordings the follow-up was released 1998; Private Rituals. A mix of ambient, worldmusic and classical. Guest musicians that appear on the album are; Edwin Paanakker, Eddie Persijn, Frans Friedrich and Choir Jeroen Bosch. The album Vow of Silence, on Tonefloat, musically referred to the debut with ambient-techno influences. The fourth album ...Of Truth, Eternal Beauty And Nought... again sounded familiar with the ambient-techno influences. The opening track Capezzoli Di Venere is a 45-minute, almost neo-romantic sounding piece of spacious sounds and rhythmic sequences which is quite a contradiction to the extremely dark final title I Have This Pain. The tone has been set and the last In-Existence album De Verkenningen continues with dark, droned sounds. The last track on the album, Vierde Verkenning is used by Dutch contemporary artist Frank Havermans[3] and can be heard inside the art-installation KAPKAR / TT-C2P. The installation is part of the exhibition Tangible Traces- Dutch Architecture and Design by Netherlands Architecture Instituut and will travel around the world for two years, opening at November 10, 2007, during the Seventh São Paulo Biennale of Architecture in Brazil. Up to now the exhibition travelled to Vienna (Austria) and Hong Kong.
