Graindelavoix is an Antwerp-based, multidisciplinary company with a fascination for the voice, the genealogy of vocal repertoires and their relationships with the affective body, history and territory. It was founded in the early 21st century by anthropologist and ethno-musicologist Björn Schmelzer.
Graindelavoix tries to activate and embody the notation, an active reading in the medieval sense. It built a reputation as a pioneer of a completely new approach to old repertoires, beyond the museum or historically informed vision. Graindelavoix collaborates and performs on an international scale. The company regularly creates multimedia and interdisciplinary projects, including film and theatre. From 2015 until this year, it has been ensemble-in-residence in the Fondation Royaumont (FR).
