Julia Justs sound is an interweaving of organic, atmospherically dense soundscapes with cranky, subtle, reverberant, pulsating and droning sounds. Field recordings, modular synthesizers, digital effect chains and granular synthesis are used to create abstract and haunting compositions at the intersection of post-industrial, dark-ambient and electroacoustic music.
