Previously only available in Japan, Hatis Noit released her enigmatic EP Illogical Dance worldwide via Erased Tapes to much acclaim in March of this year, revealing her unique song-worlds with transcendent vocal interpretations that at once deconstruct and recombine Western Classical, Japanese folk and nature’s own ambience atmosphere. Since then, Hatis Noit has performed for Late Junction’s Exposure series at Spiritland for Radio 3’s Japanese season, Blossoms, taken part in Nick Luscombe’s architecture and music project Musicity with her interpretation of London’s White Cube gallery, supported Colin Stetson at EartH and was invited to collaborate with the experimental drone choir NYX for their debut show last month.
There’s more to come in 2019 with a very special live collaboration with the London Contemporary Orchestra for The Purcell Sessions: Erased Tapes x LCO alongside Rival Consoles, Qasim Naqvi and Michael Price, as well as supporting Pan Daijing at London’s Kings Place as part of their Venus Unwrapped series, shining a light on female composers.
