Featuring Germany-based artist Azin Zahedi
Making Tracks is an environmentally-focused international music exchange programme, based around an annual UK residency and tour. They bring together exceptional artists to showcase diverse music, initiate new collaborations and explore strategies for music-based environmental engagement.
Since 2010, Making Tracks has brought world-class, diverse music from all corners of the globe to leading venues throughout the UK. Our new model, launched in 2019, selects exceptional young music professionals from the UK and around the world - 'Making Tracks Fellows' - and brings them together for a two-week residency and a two-week tour. As well as providing a platform for talented artists to showcase their music, create new collaborative works and build their careers, we also inspire Fellows to explore strategies for environmental engagement.
The Goethe-Institut is delighted to be supporting Azin Zahedi (Iran, Germany), one this year's eight Making Tracks Fellows. Making Tracks 2021 will begin with a two-week Autumn residency at Cove Park on the west coast of Scotland, followed by a UK tour starting on the 27th October.
The confirmed tour dates are:
