OPEN CALL: SOUND ALONG IN NEWPOLYPHONIES

What?
Myriam Van Imschoot and HYOID created newpolyphonies with harmony inspired by nature and the world around us. A good listener will hear a lot of different sounds in this work: the roar of aircraft engines, the chirping of crickets, the singing of the grasshopper, the buzzing of bees or flies, and so on. It is a subtle journey in a world of sound and shows how everything in our existence is full of vibrations and frequencies, from more deeply in our fibres to sounds in the higher spheres.

Would you like to participate?
Four singers of HYOID share the stage with a group of 15 participants, who are open to the bizarre and also magical sound world that is always the starting point of the work of Myriam van Imschoot.

Who?
We are looking for people in and around Brussels who are free to follow the rehearsals (workshops) and perform in the shows. Vocal experience is not required, as long as you have some curiosity and an ear for sound.

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. In newpolyphonies, four singers of HYOID join forces with 15 performers in a curious high mass about little differences with big impact.
