Marco De Biasi (b. 1977) is an Italian musician, composer and painter who owes his musical education to…. From a very early stage in his career De Biasi showed a strong inclination towards composition, graduating in Music in 1999 with top marks. In September 2000 he was forced to temporarily retire from performing concerts as a result of a neurophysiological disease called focal dystonia. Fortunately, between 2002 and 2003, after 14 months of a motor rehabilitation programme at the “Institute of Physiology and Medicine of Art” in Terrasa (BCN), he made a full recovery. To this day he continues to collaborate with the aforementioned institute (www.institutart.com - www.fcart.org/distonia/).
During his forced retirement De Biasi studied musical composition, combining it with pictorial research. Starting from Kandinsky's theories and Klee's writings, he created a phono-chromatic system, based on the relationship between sound and color. Many of his works are a union of his paintings and musical compositions. In 2007 he published his first album “Fonocromie”, including pieces composted between 2004 and 2007 with a recurring theme, that is, the close relationship between sound and chromatic vibrations.
In 2010, together with the painter Max Ciogli, he cofounded SINE, an art movement of synaesthetic synthesis, whose main goal is the investigation of the relationship between sound, color and movement. In 2012 they published the artistic manifesto. After the foundation of this group, their research was, and continues to be used in therapy. In fact, through the “National Deaf Institute” in Rome, the artistic experiences of the group are merged to create a system that would allow deaf people to relate to the musical sound experience.
