Justin Zeitlinger (b. 2000) composes music for instruments and electronics. His work reconciles diverse interests—from language, to physics, to Buddhist spirituality—in seeking to examine questions of identity, perspective, loss, and transformation. Justin’s music has been performed by loadbang, PUBLIQuartet, the National Youth Orchestra of the USA, OSSIA New Music, and AIR Contemporary Music Collective Beijing, and has been featured at festivals such as Darmstädter Ferienkurse and UML-festival (Finland). He has received additional awards and distinctions from BMI, ASCAP, and the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation.

Justin is currently pursing an M.M. in composition at the University of Washington under Huck Hodge and Yiğit Kolat. He graduated in 2022 with a B.M. in Composition from the Eastman School of Music, where he studied with Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon, Matt Barber, Bob Morris, and Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez. Originally from New Jersey, Justin previously studied composition and violin at the Juilliard School’s Pre-College division from 2013 to 2018.
