Marco Oppedisano is an American guitarist, recording artist and composer whose compositions focus on the innovative use of electric guitar in the genre of electroacoustic music. Since 1999, his 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.

CD releases in 2008 on OKSRNA include Tesla at Coney Island (with David Lee Myers) and The Ominous Corner. In July 2010, Oppedisano released a new album of electroacoustic music called Mechanical Uprising. His works have been performed and heard in various areas around the world and are all published through Out Your Ear (ASCAP)
