Album Notes
Caerwen Martin Composer

Clouds was written while Caerwen was on tour with Toni Childs, travelling around the Australian coast and outback. The different skies inspired her to take photos of clouds and write improvised compositions about the way the different environments affected her.

Caerwen (MMusPerHons) is a cellist/composer/performer who works both nationally and internationally as a new music specialist and improviser. She is the recipient of the Catherine Mary Sullivan Scholarship for excellence, The Orloff Family Trust Scholarship, the Sir John T Reid Scholarship and the Atheneaum Prize. Caerwen has worked at major festivals and venues in Australia, Europe and America with some of Australia’s most celebrated musicians and actors. Current ensembles include Arcko Symphonic, Silo String Quartet, Bolt Ensemble, Ruth Roshan Tango Noir, The Modern Post Quartet, and The Birds Duo with Elissa Goodrich. Caerwen is the artistic director of Silo String Quartet, which she founded in 1998. Her compositions with SiloSQ are broadcast internationally both on radio and online. Caerwen is represented by the Australian Music Center as an associate artist. Caerwen also teaches composition and cello at primary, secondary and tertiary levels and is an ambassador for BeyondBlue.
