The Hermes Experiment at University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield 18 November 2019 Entrance is free

The Hermes Experiment are proud to tip the scales. Combining a peculiar range of instrumentation, the quartet bonds pieces of music to its uncanny timbre of harp, clarinet, soprano vocal and double bass. At hcmf// 2019, they bring an appropriate amount of bizarre to proceedings. They’ll take on Meredith Monk’s ecstatic Double Fiesta, a tumbling musical maze that originally consisted of Monk laughing hysterically amidst the onrushing melodies of two separate pianos, as well as Joel Rust’s mind-melting Pack of Orders, in which each performer roleplays as a ‘malfunctioning android’. With their momentary lapse into robot out of the way, they’ll round off the bill by performing Oliver Leith’s hypnotic Uh huh, Yeah, leaving the audience in no doubt that this is the way to do a quartet.
