HYOID (/ˈhaɪɔɪd/) is a Brussels based group of vocal soloists specialized in new music. The classically trained singers’ vast experience and extended techniques enables HYOID to approach every production with an open mind. The group strives to challenge and expand the traditional concert formats, while cultivating close partnerships with composers, performers and artists of its generation.
The group performs a cappella as well as with instruments, tape or electronics, and adapts its line-up to each production.

artistic direction: Fabienne Séveillac & Andreas Halling

  • ‘What makes the piece so good is the way it is executed. Now, after having seen it a second time, even more so. The timing is sublime, the way these four artists play together is phenomenal, the pace is close to abnormal.’
