Justin Grotelueschen

Justin is the co-founder and Managing Director of MEGAPOLIS and has a long-standing interest in musique concrete, noise, improvisation, and looping. He began performing weekly on the radio in 1997 by live-mixing minuscule snippets of songs from the KRNU music library, and continued in 2003 with a weekly improvised performance on WZBC of slicing and mixing self-collected field recordings. He has been performing largely improvised music since 2004 using guitar, contact mics, field recordings, virtual electronic instruments, and various found and homemade objects. Before MEGAPOLIS he worked or volunteered for public, community, and campus radio stations and related media organizations for 13 years.
