A golden bubble descends
Bursting into a million iridescent rainbow flames
Drawing in cosmic seekers at the quantum level
Lord Fascinator (Johnny Mackay) is a Composer, Musician, Artist and Director who has spent the past 8 years based out of New York City.
Increasingly focussed on long form composing for screen and experiential activations, Fascinator explored this to the extreme in his design of a Manhattan hotel room - The Fascinator Suite - a physical manifestation of his subconscious which used therapy and hypnosis to inform the design complete with a 24hr original soundtrack mainly composed in the hotel.
Lord Fascinator’s performances have been described as "if Beck fronted the Happy Mondays" and "a genre-fluid space cult" while his other band Children Collide has been nominated for several ARIA awards as well as being included in Triple J’s Hottest 100 albums of all time.
Fascinator’s videos have received accolades like Best Music Video at Bowery Film Festival (NYC) and Rage Top 50 (Australia). He has performed everywhere from Dark Mofo to Burning Man, Amsterdam’s Paradiso to the staff toilets at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn.
