The organisers of the 2024 ISCM World New Music Days Festival selected Zoë Martlew’s piece ‘G-lude’ from the ISCM British Section shortlist. Zoë will perform her piece at the festival along with a programme of other electro-acoustic works for cello.
On being selected by the international jury, Zoë responded to the announcement:
“I am thrilled and honoured to absolute bits and pieces to have my piece G-lude selected to represent Britain at this year’s festival in the Faroe Islands. For solo cello and electronics, this is a piece that emerged from deepest lockdown at a time when the music profession was decimated, when I personally didn’t want to play, write or even listen to any music. This is the cathartic howl that exploded from the silence, trying to make sense of it all.”
