The meaning of ERASM

 


We are sometimes asked about the meaning of our band's name. ERASM refers to Desiderius Erasmus, the Dutch philosopher called the "Prince of the Humanists".

But it is also a French acronym for Ensemble de Recherche Auditive, Sensorielle et Musicale. Which in English becomes : Musical, Sensory and Auditive Research Ensemble. As MSARE was unpronounceable, we preferred ERASM !
