Finn Buster Robertson (born 13 September 1981) is an Australian composer and music producer.

He grew up in country Victoria learning to play piano, guitar and trumpet before discovering the bizarre and otherworldly sounds that were possible to make with a computer. From 2000 to 2002 he applied and expanded these skills from his early experiments in electronic and acoustic composition at RMIT University's Media Arts[1] under Philip Brophy and Philip Samartzis. His works are notable for integrating electronic music sounds with traditional orchestral arrangements.

Career[edit]

Finn worked in-house as Audio Director and Lead Composer for three years at Torus Games in Melbourne over which time he created the soundtracks and oversaw the Sound Design of over 10 commercially released games including

Since then he has worked as a freelance Composer and Sound Designer on various short film animation and game projects including Pinion which was screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival in 2010 and Beatrice, her beast and the man from the city. Finn created sound design for Isobel Knowles' animation I Fell off my Bike[5] and Jemila MacEwan's exhibition Drawing No. 1[6]

Finn is currently collaborating on various short films and two music projects Howlove and The Bloom Project.

Personal life[edit]

Finn became a vegetarian in 2010, citing the book Eating Animals as a significant influence.
