The Ensemble Musikfabrik (music factory ensemble) is an ensemble for contemporary classical music located in Cologne (Germany). 

Ensemble Musikfabrik was founded in 1990, and is regarded as one of the leading ensembles for contemporary music. As the name suggests, musikFabrik is especially dedicated to artistic innovation. New and in their medial form unknown works that they have often commissioned are their actual production area. The results of this work, frequently in a close collaboration with the composers, are presented by the ensemble of international soloists in 80 to 100 concerts a year in Germany and abroad in festivals and in their own world Première series "Musikfabrik in WDR" along with regular radio and CD productions. The Ensemble Musikfabrik is supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
