Luke Nickel is an award-winning Canadian interdisciplinary artist and researcher currently undertaking a PhD at Bath Spa University.

He has worked with ensembles and organizations such as EXAUDI, the Bozzini Quartet, the Arnoflini Gallery, and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. He also co-directs the Cluster: New Music + Integrated Arts Festival in Winnipeg, MB, Canada.
