Justin Scheid is a musician, composer, teacher, and production technician based in Long Beach, California. Since graduating from California Institute of the Arts with a Masters Degree in Music Composition, most of Justin’s musical work has fallen between two major outlets: live electronic performance and dance collaboration. As a performer, Justin utilizes analog and digital technologies to create interactive and improvisational sound environments within a venue space. Believing each space is inherently unique, he strives to make each performance as unique as the venue itself. As a composer, he frequently collaborates L.A.-based dance companies such as Iris Company and Dance Aegis (now based in Atlanta, Georgia), and has recently worked with renowned choreographer Heidi Duckler in a production at the Ford Theater in Hollywood. Justin currently teaches music technology at Rio Hondo College and Chapman University, and teaches music at the Sharon Lund Dance School at California Institute of the Arts. In addition to teaching, Justin spends his free time building stages and operating soundboards for various production companies around L.A. When not building stages, he enjoys building homemade synthesizers.
