Saturn EP

Justin Macauley, an artist hailing from Northern Michigan. With a passion for music that began at the age of 15 through his local church choir, Justin has since evolved into a musician, songwriter and music producer.

Early in 2023, he embarked on a creative journey by experimenting with music production using a digital audio workstation (DAW) which enabled him to explore his musical creativity and produce a unique sound.

Justin’s music is inspired by a diverse range of artists including Grimes, Hana, Autumn’s Gray Solace, and other ethereal music makers. His sound is a captivating fusion of electronic, experimental, and otherworldly elements, with occasional pop influences, and a dreamy, celestial atmosphere. With a focus on creating emotive and thought-provoking music, Justin’s songs are a reflection of his personal experiences and the world

About the Music:


The Song Saturn is Justin’s first ever music creation. It was created with very little music knowledge of music theory, but still features a dreamy ethereal sound. The song has a slow, gentle melody that plays using different synths. Reverb and Chorus are heavily used in this. The melody is joined by a soft, ethereal soundscape that creates a sense of peace and tranquility. It is inspired by music by Autumn’s Gray Solace and Hana.

Project 1:

“Project 1” is the second track on the EP Saturn. The song is reminiscent of the Metroid Prime sound track by Mr.Yamamoto-San (Kenji Yamamoto) called Tallon Overworld 1 that is featured on the Metroid Prime soundtrack (video game) that he composed. Project 1 features a lot of otherworldly sounds that make you feel as if you are on a desolate alien planet. The song creates a sense of isolation and loneliness.
