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 under Philip Brophy and Philip Samartzis. His works are notable for integrating electronic music sounds with traditional orchestral arrangements.
