Myriam Van Imschoot

Myriam Van Imschoot (1969) is a writer and performance artist based in Brussels who works on sound and voice through different media. She often works with archives. In 2011 she has received a grant from the Flemish Government Commission to focus for two years on ‘Per Sonare’, a research and artistic trajectory revolving around the voice.

After her solo ‘Living Archive’ (Kaaitheater, March 2011), in which she used her self-collected sound archive as point of departure, she is currently preparing a new work on the technique of yodeling and voicing over distances. Included here are links related to some recent works:

Vozes de Magaio (October 2012), a piece made in collaboration with Toine Horvers for the sound arts center Binaural, during a festival in the rural mountain range ‘Magaio’ in Northern Portugal. Myriam Van Imschoot: “Toine and I walked a route from sunset to sunrise and along our way we vocally announced the time, by shouting out the hours in sync with each other through the use of digital clocks. Since we were two, and since we were interested in connecting different ‘loci’ (small villages and places) along our way, we would make ‘sound bridges’ with our voice from one point to another. Thus a sound sculpture came about.” http://www.toinehorvers.nl/toinehorvers/cms/cms_module/index.php?obj_id=2078#
