Pietro Frigato is a guitarist, composer, improviser and teacher born in Italy, based in the Netherlands. He graduated in composition at the Conservatoire “F.Venezze”, Rovigo. His research is focused on improvisation, on the concept of borders in music, on the edge of perceptions, on the distortion and compression of the signal as poetic, esthetic and conceptual tools. 

He's running as artistic director, the “Cataclisma Improvisation Festival” a space for new music, improvisation and social projects.  

In 2012 He co-founded the "Ensemble Collettivo Crisis", a group of composers and performers who practices and performs collective composition and improvvisation in the field of contemporary music (www.crisisensemble.com). 

In 2014 he created the F:A:M: fucina artistica musicale ("musical and artistic forge"), an educational project in which the music teachers can research and develops custom, non-standard, maieutical and innovative way to teach music and to improve the student's creativity and artistic freedom. 

He performs in several project such as S.P.I.I.C. and Impromptu.works from Hamburg, the newly made international trio Shortest Job First ( https://sjftrio.bandcamp.com/ )
