L'arsenale, established in Treviso in 2005 by young musicians and composers under the art direction of Filippo Perocco, aims to fill the gap between composing and making music; between conceiving a sound and the gesture that will produce that sound; between the lifetime of a sound and the recieving space that will consume it. As confirmation of aperduring research devoted to New Music, the ensemble commits from the beginning to perform premieres and on demand works of young composers, promptly adapting its personell each time. The ensemble organises its own festival, L'arsenale - new music in Treviso, that features concerts, seminars, masterclasses and the composition course called Chiamata alle Musiche. It constantly proposes collaborations with international level ensembles, soloists and conductors like Ensemble Argento (New York), ensemble Dissonanzen, ensemble Algoritmo, Edison Studio, Mario Caroli, Marco Angius, Zoltan Pesko, Michele Lomuto, Salvatore Sciarrino. L'arsenale collaborates with many institutions and participates in many contemporary music festivals like the Venice Biennale, Mata Festival in New York, Beams, Northeastern University and Brandeis University of Boston, University of Minnesota, Contemporanea and Taukay in Udine, American Academyand Goethe Institute in Roma, Centro tedesco di studi veneziani, Kairos association - Camino al Tagliamento, Accademia Musicale Villa Ca' Zenobio, Compositori a Confronto in Reggio Emilia, Cemat-Progetto Sonora, ArsPublica and many others. The ensemble performed in venues like Le Poisson Rouge (New York), Slosberg Music Hall and Fenway Center (Boston), Ferguson Hall (Minneapolis), Teatro alle Tese (Venezia), Teatro delle Voci (Treviso).
