Nnux is the solo project of Mexican composer, producer and keyboard player Ana López-Reyes, who is based in Mexico City. Her music is based on the digital processing of samples from voices, acoustic instruments, everyday sounds, electronic beats and synthesizers. Influenced by experimental music, electronic music and pop, Nnux creates music that aims to be emotional and vulnerable while still being experimental and imaginative. 

Ana has performed in different venues in Mexico and the USA, including cultural spaces, DIY venues and festivals in Mexico City, Boston and New York City. Her music has been featured on BBC Radio1, FACT Magazine, and XLR8R. She has been commissioned by Metropolis Ensemble (NYC) for the Flamekeepers and Biophony projects (2021) and is currently one of the members of the project MUXX, which received the Art and Technology Grant awarded by Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). She’s been twice awarded the prestigious Jóvenes Creadores grant by the National Endowment for Culture and Arts (Mexico), both in 2019 and 2021. Also interested in the social impact of music, she was recently appointed co-director of Found Sound México, the Mexican division of NY-based organization Found Sound Nation, working in providing support for musicians whose work plays an important role in empowering communities.

In 2017 she released independently the EP Distancia. 
In 2020, she released her debut LP Ciudad on Mexico City-based label VAA. 
 
Ana holds a degree in performance and composition from the New England Conservatory in Boston. ​
