Hello, world! My name is Joshua McLean, and I’m a professional composer / audio engineer with a strong technical background and a passion for music and game development.

I run a Discord community of game jammers and other creatives called 8 Bits to Infinity. We host a game jam every month to sharpen our skills and learn from each other. You can join us on Discord to discuss games, music, and other creative endeavors, as well as join our jams. We’d love to have you!

Need dynamic, emotional music for your game, film, or other media? Need production/mixing for a commercial project?

I work in a variety of genres including electronic, rock, orchestral, chiptune, and more. My skills include composition, production, mixing, sound design, and implementation/programming of audio systems. See below for samples.

My rates are flexible and vary depending on the project budget and scope. I will work tirelessly to meet any required deadlines. Interested in working with me? Get in touch with this form or contact me directly.


“Joshua not only makes amazing music, but he does it quickly and professionally. You can really hear his heart in the music.”
— Nathan Blake Games
“I’ve worked with Joshua on Ludum Dare jam entries for the past couple years. I reach out to him first because he’s a blast to work with and no matter what crazy idea I throw at him, his work always takes it to the next level.”
