Marco Oppedisano (born November 20, 1971 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American guitarist and composer whose compositions focus on the innovative use of electric guitar in the genre of electroacoustic music. His musique concrète/acousmatic music compositions have utilized multitrack recording and extended performance techniques for electric guitar and bass. In addition to musique concrète, recent compositions by Oppedisano also consist of "live" electric guitar in combination with a fixed playback of various electronic, acoustic (specifically female voice courtesy of his wife, Kimberly Fiedelman) and sampled sounds. His electroacoustic music has been described as “...mindbending music for guitar and electronics... hear Oppedisano’s intricate roar.” [1] (Time Out New York) and "....in-your-face and almost confrontational music, which however never sees salvation in total mayhem, but in creating an immediate emotional and endorphinal experience..." [2](Tokafi) Oppedisano started playing guitar at the age of 12 and was primarily a self-taught rock guitarist before entering studies at The Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music.

After two years of classical guitar study with Michael Cedric Smith at Brooklyn College, he completed composition studies there with Tania Leon, Charles Dodge, Noah Creshevsky (creator of Hyperrealism (music) and George Brunner.
