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 the 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. HYOID (/ˈhaɪɔɪd/) gets is name from the U-shaped hyoid-bone, a bone helping with diction and tongue movement, the only free-floating bone in the human body.
Hyoid is part of the COHORT platform and from the season 20/21 for 3 years on, the group is artist-in-residence at Music Centre De Bijloke in Ghent.
