Award for the Recording of New Music sponsored by VoxCarynx


It was a very high standard across the board, with a number of nominations that fascinating artistically, with top quality performance and production values. Albums that were recorded in both live contexts and in studios were considered, and the artistic context and impact of recordings was much discussed. Many of the nominations - including some not shortlisted - will be being given as Christmas presents by the panelists later this year!


Panel: Vimbaryi Kaziboni, Lindsay Pell, Alan Morrison, Susanne Stanzeleit


Erocean - LivMassive and Hessian Renegade

this recording is unlike anything else happening in Scotland (or anywhere, really!), with hip-hop and contemporary classical techniques going hand-in-hand. There's a multi-faceted texture to this that makes it compelling listening.


The Night With… Live Vol. One

great performances, well recorded, eclectic programme, which felt like a live performance, and captured the philosophy and ethos of The Night With... as an organisation. //




Letters – David Fennessy

 impeccable music making and very high-quality production values. The whole album has a diverse aesthetic, and is a quality product from start to finish.



From Ocean’s Floor – Linda Buckley

Linda Buckley, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Crash Ensemble, Isabelle O'Connell, Joby Burgess, ConTempo Quartet, Darragh Morgan/NMC Records

great performances and high-quality recording that took listeners on a journey and had great impact
