Zoë  Martlew

Born: 1968
Country of origin: United Kingdom
Cellist, performer, composer, educator, blogger, natural blonde, the increasingly un-categorisable Zoë Martlew travels the globe playing her own music and that written for her, working with some of the world’s most renowned contemporary music ensembles, improvisation, film, electronica, multi-media, pop and rock artists, dance and theatre companies.

As part of her one woman show Revue Z, her music and theatre pieces for cello, voice and sound track have been performed in a wide variety of venues and contexts, including Aldeburgh Festival, MORS Festival Denmark, Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada, Ustinov Studio at the Theatre Royal, Bath, Wigmore Hall in London and in Reykjavik and Copenhagen.

Her cello and tape music for dance has been choreographed by Antonia Franceschi (New York City Ballet) for solo shows and for Ballet Black including Linbury Studio, Royal Opera House; Up From the Waste Soho Theatre; POP8 Giant Olive Theatre, London; assorted dancers from Royal Ballet and Rambert Dance in Malta and Clore Studio, ROH, and for Avant-Garde Collaboration Ballet Company in Boston.

Her music for film includes collaborations with video artists Signe Klejs in Denmark and Albert Hartwig in Holland; documentary Zonder Commando for National Geographic. Music devised for theatre includes Ghostward, Almeida Theatre; Warning to the Curious, Eastern Angles Theatre, and Cabaret of the Absurd for musicians and dancers at CoLab Festival in London.

Variation Z  - Hame was commissioned by the Primrose Piano Quartet, received multiple perform-ances across the UK, and is recorded for Meridian records. At the time of publication Zoë is work-ing on ensemble commissions for CoMA and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.

Zoë was a judge on BBC TV’s Maestro and Young Musician of the Year; is a regular commenta-tor/presenter for the BBC TV Proms, Radio 3 and Newsnight Review and was on the UK panel for the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest.

She is much in demand for educational activities, giving masterclasses, seminars and workshops at universities, music conservatoires and festivals around the world, including Saigon Chamber Music Festival in Vietnam, Dartington and Pro Corda chamber music courses, Phoenix Dance Theatre Composing and Choreography Lab. She is a regular jury member for composition and string com-petitions, including the Royal Philharmonic Society annual composition awards.

Martlew studied at the Royal College and Academy of Music, Clare College, Cambridge and the Chopin Academy in Warsaw.
