ISCM South Africa (NewMusicSA), the organizer of the 2023 ISCM World New Music Days, has announced the works that have been selected for performance from the call for scores.
From the Flemish entry for ISCM's Call for Works, the international selection committee chose Shades of Light by Annelies Van Parys.
Statement from the jury:
"How Annelies Van Parys continues to discover new paths and worlds in her musical language is greatly admired. In Shades of Light, the cello and electronics fuse together very beautifully. With limited material, a lot happens in this composition."
Shades of Light was created by Séverine Ballon during the previous edition of Transit
Shades of Light will be performed during the 2023 ISCM World New Music Days in South Africa (24 November – 3 December 2023), the first ISCM festival ever held on the African continent.
