Marco Fusinato is an artist and musician whose work has taken the form of installation, photographic reproduction, performance and recording.

His overall aesthetic project combines allegorical appropriation with an interest in the intensity of a gesture or event.

As a musician, Fusinato explores the idea of noise as music, using the electric guitar and mass amplification to improvise intricate, wide-ranging and physically affecting frequencies.
