Silo String Quartet was founded by Cellist and Composer Caerwen Martin in 1998. Silo has performed regularly at the Melbourne International Jazz Festivals and Melbourne International Women in Jazz Festivals since 1999 working with such artists as Fiona Burnett, Belinda Moody, Antonio Tenace, David Chisholm and Quinsin Nachoff (Canada) and was the resident string quartet for the Federation Music Week International Composers Forum.

Silo are currently recording a CD for the Federation of Australian Composers that showcases the best of Australia’s new string quartets. This year Silo have recorded a CD for the Sydney Dance Company entitled Origami, composed by David Chisholm. Silo also feature on the live ABC CD Soaring at Dawn for Jazz trio and String Quartet composed by soprano saxophonist Fiona Burnett. Recent work has included performing at Glen Eira Town Hall, Billilla House, Stonington Manor, Melba Hall, Bennetts Lane and Federation Square as well as many recording and performance projects for composers and popular artists including Dan Brodie, Millionaire Souls, CC Martini, Philip Gelbach and Johanna Selleck.

Silo has broadcast live on ABC and Melbourne radio stations and features on Caerwen Martin's new soundtrack to the Australian feature film 'Lost and Found’ by David Blake.

Caerwen Martin writes for acoustic and amplified instruments as well as electronic-based works. Her work is usually based on the natural environment, dreams and significant emotional experiences. She uses graphic and traditional notation, and visual images such as photographs and sketches to access intuitive creativity.
