The Hermes Experiment are joined by collaborators Stevie WishartEwan Campbell and Jethro Cooke to explore sights and sounds of the city. Through new commissions, arrangements and free improvisation, the uncompromising metropolis will be seen by night and day, as a symbol of progress, destruction, light and dark.

Stevie Wishart’s new piece is based on the Eurostar and will create sonic icons reflecting on the Eurostar tunnel, the train itself, as well as sounds specific to London and Brussels, reflecting on how the Eurostar has forged new links between these two metropolises.

Using an intricate graphic score based on the London tube map, Ewan Campbell’s new piece will 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.

These three new works will be complemented by three arrangements and free improvisation that focus on different faces of a METROPOLIS.
