Ensemble Collettivo Crisis is a group of composers and performers focused on music research and production in the fields of new music, improvisation and contemporary arts. They are active since 2012, based in Rovigo, in the north-east of Italy. The collective’s core and founders are Pietro Frigato and Marco Bussi. Daniel Savio and Davide Rossato are members of the Crisis Ensemble 4et Project. Sigfried Pegoraro is a performer and guitarist of the Ensemble. The recent music production and research of Ensemble Collettivo Crisis investigates the unconscious formal paths and structures of free improvisation, and explores the concept of borders in music: sound/noise/silence, perception/non perception. The Ensemble is active in contemporary music composition as well, bringing improvisation in the score, deepening the idea of structuralism and expanding the possibilities of traditional instruments through live electronics and new technologies.
