The Hermes Experiment is one of the most exciting forces in contemporary music today.
Fronted by the captivating singer Heloïse Werner, this quartet of sensational musicians has been winning over audiences with their arresting stage presence and wildly imaginative programmes, covering all styles of new music in today’s gloriously eclectic scene.
Their effortless ability to bring music from the margins into the mainstream was fully acknowledged last year when The Hermes Experiment won the Young Artist Award from the Royal Philharmonic Society, a prestigious prize that has launched the careers of some of the world’s most famous musicians.

Winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist Award 2021 and the Royal Over-Seas League Mixed Ensemble Competition 2019, The Hermes Experiment is one of the UK’s leading young contemporary music ensembles. Capitalising on their deliberately idiosyncratic combination of instruments (harp, clarinet, voice and double bass), The Hermes Experiment regularly commissions new works, as well as creating their own innovative arrangements and venturing into live free improvisation. They have commissioned over 60 composers at various stages of their careers. They have released two albums on Delphian Records – HERE WE ARE and SONG – both to critical acclaim.
