The Dynamis Ensemble originated in 1999 in Milan, Italy, from a group of musicians already active within the framework of international concerts, joined by an intense passion for the knowledge and diffusion of contemporary music and 20th-century composers.

Since then, the group has established in Italian contemporary music circles regarding their performance, precision and technical skills, frequently combining the music of young composers with the works of the masters. In addition, the Dynamis Ensemble has performed in numerous concerts at important cultural centres, both in Italy and abroad, such as Festival Milano Musica, Aspekte Salzburg, Mostra Sonora Sueca (Spain), Festival Internacional Cervantino (Mexico), International Forum of Cultures UNESCO Monterrey (Mexico), and Forum Neue Musik Luzern.

The ensemble often performs world premieres of musical works, including the interaction of electro-acoustics and multimedia in their performances. The Dynamis Ensemble collaborates with composers such as Jonathan Harvey, Alessandro Solbiati, and Javier Torres Maldonado.
