THE TIMES is a forum for young composers. A young composer can take classes at the music academy, participate in internships and try to master as many instruments as possible, but in the end the performance of a composition remains the most important necessity.

Young composers especially need experimentation and cooperation with professional musicians in order to further develop their personal style and craftsmanship.

With THE TIMES, HERMESensemble offers young composers (12-20 years old) the opportunity to have their works performed and to experiment with sounds during rehearsals. The participants are coached by professional composers.

THE TIMES ACADEMY

In addition to The Times, HERMESensemble, AMUZ and De Veerman are also developing a separate trajectory for young composers (conservatory students and participants of SOUNDMINE 2020) under the name THE TIMES ACADEMY. This is a co-creation trajectory, in which a new composition takes shape in close collaboration with the musicians of HERMESensemble and composer Wim Henderickx.
