“The Hermes Experiment last night were barmy but brilliant” Classical Music Magazine
“A musical Joy” A Younger Theatre
Park Lane Group Young Artists 2015/16, winners of the Nonclassical Battle of the Bands 2014 and UK Young Artists 2014, The Hermes Experiment is an ensemble of four young professional musicians passionate about contemporary and experimental music, inspired to create something innovative and unique. Capitalising on their deliberately idiosyncratic combination of instruments, the ensemble regularly commissions new works, as well as creating their own innovative arrangements and venturing into live free improvisation. The ensemble also strives to create a platform for cross-disciplinary collaboration.
They have been accepted to Wigmore Hall Learning’s Chamber Tots and For Crying Out Loud schemes.
“It was an enormous pleasure to write for The Hermes Experiment, and to work with them: they are four immensely talented young musicians with bags of enthusiasm and energy, and an impressive commitment to the material they perform. I think they have a very bright future.” Giles Swayne
