After six years and over sixty commissions, The Hermes Experiment celebrates its unique contribution to the new music scenes with the launch of their debut album HERE WE ARE. With their unique line-up of harp, clarinet, soprano and double bass, the sounds heard both live and recorded are like you’ve never heard before.
