The Hermes Experiment

Crucible Adelphi Room, Sheffield

Past Event

Join Contemporary Music for All Sheffield (CoMA) for this presented workshop that interweaves explorations of the human voice into the unique colours of an open ensemble. CoMA are joined by composers Héloïse Werner (Hermes Experiment) and Ellen Sargen (MD CoMA Manchester) to explore pieces for mixed ensemble and voice. Either join in as an instrumentalist or vocalist on the day (all abilities of instrument and voice are welcome), or simply relax and watch as an audience member, with opportunities for Q&A throughout. Either way, this is an event to bring you closer to the music and scores will be available to peruse on the day.

Allcomers participants will be supported on the day to engage with these open scores, which invite players to make small decisions about what and how to play, and consider new ways of thinking about music.

Past Event

This panel discussion is an opportunity to explore musical responses to the natural world and ask if music, and the wider arts, can contribute to developing our response to the most pressing issue facing us today.  

A distraction while sea levels rise, or a galvanising force to motivate us as we build a better world… does music have a role to play in tackling the climate crisis?  

Featuring composer Graham Fitkin, Co-creator of Sheffield Ark Tom Payne, music psychologist Helen Prior and Ensemble 360’s Tim Horton, this promises to be a lively conversation to inspire and provoke.
