Artist photo of E-MEX-Ensemble

E-MEX-Ensemble, which specializes in contemporary music of a wide range of styles, was founded in 1999. E-MEX has set itself the goal of permeating the boundaries between genres, styles, and art forms as much as possible. This is evidenced not only by projects with jazz musicians, sound and video artists, dancers, and actors but also by repeated collaborations with such diverse personalities as Johannes Kreidler, the enfant terrible of the new music scene, the cabaret artist and presenter Martin Zingsheim, and the soprano Christiane Oelze.

Composers from Germany, France, Eastern Europe, the USA, China, and Korea have written works for E-MEX. Time and again, E-MEX relates contemporary works to music from other eras to create connections and access points for the audience. Numerous CD productions attest to the cooperation with radio stations such as SWR, WDR, and DLF. Concert tours regularly take the ensemble to other European countries, South America, the USA, and Asian countries.
