LUX:NM contemporary music ensemble berlin was founded by Ruth Velten and Silke Lange in 2010, with the aim of realizing self-created and versatile chamber music programs with a flexible group of instruments. The intensive ensemble work makes extraordinary new projects possible: interdisciplinary projects as well as intercultural approaches naturally find their place here. The ensemble’s instrumentalists are chamber musicians who are much in demand, have received awards at international competitions, and can regularly be found performing on major concert stages and festivals, including the Warsaw Autumn, MaerzMusik, and Festival de Música Contemporánea Chile. In 2017, the album LUXUS was awarded the German Record Critic’s Award and was placed on their List of the Best. In 2018 the album STRANDGUT and in 2021 the album DARK LUX was released.
