A project by Myriam Van Imschoot in collaboration with HYOID

Tue 10 August 2021, 22.00

Myriam Van Imschoot & HYOID: newpolyphonies (2020), Premiere of the video version – 25‘

Myriam Van Imschoot (Concept, Composition, Direction)

HYOID voices:
Fabienne Seveillac (Mezzo-Soprano)
Andreas Halling (Tenor)
Els Mondelaers (Mezzo-Soprano)
Gunther Vandeven (Baryton)

Manifold, meditative, monstrous, machinic, mimetic, mesmerizing, minuscule, mighty, methodical, momentary, mystical.
Myriam Van Imschoot and the Belgian vocal ensemble HYOID create an adaptation of their celebrated piece newpolyphonies, in a live stream where the camera takes you inside the magnetic field of a live performance. The singers of HYOID and their guests invite you to this curious high mass about little differences with big impact. Inspired by insects, climate marches and airplane traffic coming to a halt, the leitmotif in this concert/performance is not the loud collective chant, but the experience that each individual – like a link in a chain – can set a vortex of sounds in motion.

After the Livestream there will be a discussion with HYOID and Myriam Van Imschoot on Zoom.
