« You're pushing, pushing and then it begins to pull you. »
In newpolyphonies rewired the presence of sound is contagious, stirring the air and wobbling wave-patterns to the point of sweet vertigo. Among 20 little loudspeakers the listener surrenders to an ever-changing journey, where elastic landscapes arise before they sink back under the skin.
As always in the work of Myriam Van Imschoot all the sounds in newpolyphonies rewired are made by the bare human body and voice without technical added effect, as surprising as it might be. This time the singers attune their polyphony to the traffic of airplanes and the drum of insects beyond points of recognition of what is individual and what is collective, human or machine.
The sound installation of Myriam Van Imschoot and HYOID voices, developed with WALPURGIS, is based on the recordings of the concert newpolyphonies where 4 singers of HYOID were joined by 17 local performers in a performance at Muziekcentrum De Bijloke. Rewiring this event transforms it to a new level of immersion.
