KNM stands for the active, current music scene in Berlin's metropolis. Along with other students of former East Berlin's Hanns Eisler School of Music, Juliane Klein and Thomas Bruns founded the ensemble in 1988. It is now made up of eleven musicians from all over Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland. The opinion that "New Music is not only for musicians and composers" has led to an active, intense attitude towards performing and programming concerts, as well as to direct audience contact. In close collaboration with international composers, authors, conductors, artists and producers, KNM has presented compositions, concert installations and projects across Europe, in the USA and in South America. KNM's discography comprises 13 CDs to date; the KNM was awarded the "German Records Critic Award" 03/2009 und 03/2010.
