Giuseppe Pisano (b. 1991, Napoli) is an electroacoustic composer and sound artist based in Oslo.
His work is broadly concerned with the investigation of space as a compositional tool and the development of narrative in acousmatic music trough an anecdotal approach to sound and its perception. His aesthetic features the use of field recording and extensive processing techniques to emphasize the metaphorical elements of his soundscapes and underline poetic and synesthetic references to his personal experience.
His formal education includes electroacoustic composition at the Conservatorio di Napoli and the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht where he studied with professors such as Elio Martusciello, Renè Uijlehoet and Wouter Snoei.
He is currently enrolled in a MA program in Music Technology at the Norges Musikkhøgskole where he carries on a project about immersive audio and spatialization techniques with Prof. Natasha Barrett.
He has performed at many festivals and venues around Europe, such as IAC – Malmö, EMUFest – Rome, VERV – Venice Electroacoustic Rendez-Vous, KMH – Stockholm, Multiversale, HMS – Karlsruhe, FLUSSI and collaborated with artists such as Mark IJzerman, Gino Robair, Antonio Raia, Davide Palmentiero, Claudio Panariello.
