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” 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.
