The Hermes Experiment - Thurstan Redding
The Hermes Experiment - Thurstan Redding
The Hermes Experiment's latest event, Metropolis, mixes new music by  Stevie Wishart  Ewan Campbell and Jethro Cooke, with arrangements and free improvisation, all inspired by our image of the ciity. Performed at The Cockpit Theatre on 27 October 2015 the Hermes Experiment features performers Anne Denholm, harp, Oliver Pashley, clarinet, Marianne Schofield, double bass , Heloise Werner, soprano and is directed by Heloise Werner and Hanna Grzeskiewicz.

Stevie Wishart’s new piece is based on the Eurostar, and will create sonic icons reflecting on the Eurostar, whilst Ewan Campbell’s new piece uses an intricate graphic score based on the London tube map to take us on various journeys inspired by London and its poets. For Jethro Cooke’s new piece, field recordings made in and around London have been collected and collaged to create a new, semi-improvised piece that puts instruments in dialogue with the sounds of the city. Also in the programme will be arrangements of Joni Mitchell, and Kurt Weill, plus free improvisation.
