BBC Open Ear / The Hermes Experiment

Joseph Havlat, Apartment House & Séverine Ballon

The Hermes Experiment

Innovative, disruptive and altogether without apology, Open Ear presents music from the leading edge.

In this instalment, we rotate around four boundary-pushing artists from the contemporary classical scene. The Hermes Experiment dives fearlessly into adventurous works by Meredith Monk, Joel Rust and Josephine Stephenson, while Joseph Havlat explores the dark colours of the piano (and toy piano). Then Apartment House bring their avant-garde experimentalism to bear on two UK premieres by Julius Aglinskas and Adrian Demoč, alongside the sparse hypnoticism of Oliver C Leith’s Grinding bust turning. Séverine Ballon completes the programme with spacious music for cello and electronics.
