Michele Deiana (1992, Cagliari, Italy) is a composer based between Venice and Birmingham.
Grew up in a family where education and the arts were highly valued, he began making music at an early age, first playing electric guitar, electric bass and drums in different punk-rock and metal bands, then studying classical guitar at the Cagliari Conservatory of Music while attending a specialized visual arts high school. His studies at the Conservatory included composition, improvisation, harmony, and counterpoint. After his studies in Cagliari, he enrolled at the “Benedetto Marcello” Conservatory of Venice, graduating in 2018 with the school's highest distinction in Composition and New Technologies (with the guidance of Corrado Pasquotti); here, thanks to the Opera Studio project, he also had the opportunity to work actively in a theatrical environment, participating as a Light Director in the Conservatory’s productions (Dittico, Donizetti: performed in Treviso at Mario Del Monaco Theatre, and Romeo e Giulietta, Zingarelli: performed in Venice at Fondazione Teatro La Fenice).
In 2019, thanks to an Erasmus Scholarship, he moved at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (UK) to continue his MA studies in Composition. During the same year he took part in the AESOP Annual Congress (Association of European Schools of Planning) as a speaker for the mobile workshop Barene, held in Venice by Collettivo Confluenze – a group that gathers visual artists, architects, and musicians as well. He worked within the performance of Sun and Sea (Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th Venice International Art Exhibition; Golden Lion awarded) as a Musical Assistant. Michele is a co-founder member of the Venetian association V.E.R-V. interested in exploring new ways for artistic research and production, particularly focused on the sound/performance field. His works were performed and broadcasted at festivals, institutions and radio like RaiRadio3 (Soundscape, 2019) La Biennale di Venezia (The Untold Want, 2017), EXPO Venice (Aquae, 2015), A. gi. Mus. (Dialogo 2015; Sidus 2019), Pinault Foundation (La Foi, 2016; Inside, 2017, Leuksna, 2019), Gallergry and TRAFFIC Festival (Intertidal.Barene, 2019).
