Marcel Donné is a Dutch musician.

Donné has a Commodore 64 computer since Christmas 1985. The following year, he arranged C64 music using brandnew Electrosound 64 and Soundmonitor. His first releases are dated early February 1987.

In 1987, Donné and Charles Deenen met at a monthly computer meeting in Venlo and co-founded Maniacs of Noise in September. According to C=Lehti 4/89, Deenen fired Donné for being uninspired, though both still are in contact. According to interviews with Donné, he had to go to the army in 1989 and doesn't really like his own game music very much.

Since 2001, Donné remixes C64 songs. From 2003-08-21 to 2016-05-23, he was playing keyboards in SID'80s (Stuck in D'Eighties), mostly with Ben Daglish, Mark Knight, Jon Hare, and Andreas Wallström. Outside computers, he likes Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Cocteau Twins, Recoil, Philip Glass, Michael Nyman, This Mortal Coil and The Beatles.

Donné resides in Hoofddorp, North Holland, and works as a network engineer.
