Winners of the Tunnell Trust Awards 2016 and Park Lane Group Young Artists 2015/16, The Hermes Experiment is not your average quartet. Comprising harp, clarinet, voice and double bass, and delighting in the off-beat possibilities of this idiosyncratic combination, the ensemble regularly commissions new works, as well as creating their own innovative arrangements and venturing into live free improvisation. So far they’ve commissioned no less than 40 composers, from rising stars to elder statesmen, with recent highlights including a showcase performance at Tallinn Music Week 2017 and the ensemble’s debut at London’s Southbank Centre and Kings Place.
