GIuseppe Desiato

Composing and Imaging


Giuseppe Desiato is a Composer and Saxphonist currently living in Boston, Massachusetts. His approach to sounds has always been made as a continuous research on the malleability of the sound. Every material is meticulously chosen and deeply crafted to create multi-layered structures that just give an idea of clarity and strength. Many of his compositions are influenced by shapes, landscapes, architectures and video art.
Desiato's upcoming and past previous collaborations include performances by Yarn/Wire ensemble, Splice ensemble, Dario Calderone, Anna Clementi, Hugh Watkins, Alexandra Wood, Sepura Brass Septet and Chroma Ensemble among others.
