Myriam Van Imschoot & HYOID (BE)
Myriam Van Imschoot lives and works in Brussels and makes performances, creates sound poetry and vocal pieces, exhibits video and sound installations. She holds a unique position in the Belgian art field, moving between institutional fields and media, with a keen interest to experiment with contexts when not creating her own.
HYOID is a Brussels-based group of classically trained vocal soloists specialized in new music and transdisciplinary performance. The group strives to challenge and expand traditional concert formats, while cultivating close partnerships with composers, performers and artists of its generation. They perform a cappella as well as with instruments, tape or electronics, and adapt their line-up to each production.
Myriam Van Imschoot & HYOID (BE): newpolyphonies
For newpolyphonies, Myriam Van Imschoot was inspired by insects, climate marches and the recent manifestations against cutbacks in the arts and civil society. The guiding principle is not the loud chanting of the crowd, but the experience that each individual - like a link in chain - can set a vortex of sounds in motion.
