NightMusic – The Hermes Experiment
13th February 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm£10 - £16
NightMusic is our new contemporary music series. Bringing together some of the most exciting and distinctive musical voices working today, it’s a more easy-going way to explore new directions in music – from electro-acoustic soloists to convention-flouting ensembles – and to enjoy thrilling performances from leading young British performers. The best of new Welsh music also features in each event, courtesy of Ty Cerdd.
All NightMusic performances take place in the intimate setting of St David’s L3 Lounge, with atmospheric lighting and spoken introductions from the performers to open up their musical worlds. Every event will be as informal as it is immersive, with plenty of opportunities to talk to the artists between sets. Whilst you’re here you can make good use of our lovely new gin bar and, to get you going, we even include your first drink in the ticket price.
Cool contemporary sounds and chilled cocktails – a classic combination coming soon.
The Hermes Experiment – 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
