Hatis Noit is a Japanese vocal performer hailing from distant Shiretoko in Hokkaido who now resides in London. Her accomplished range is astonishingly self-taught, inspired by everything she could find from Gagaku — Japanese classical music — and operatic styles, Bulgarian and Gregorian chanting, to avant-garde and pop vocalists.
The name Hatis Noit itself is taken from Japanese folklore, meaning the stem of the lotus flower. The lotus represents the living world, while its root represents the spirit world, therefore Hatis Noit is what connects the two. For Hatis Noit, music represents the same netherworld with its ability to move and transport us to the other side; the past, a memory, our subconscious.
March 23, 2018 marked the worldwide release of her first enigmatic EP Illogical Dance on Erased Tapes. The arresting 4-track record features Björk-collaborators Matmos and creates unique song-worlds with transcendent vocal interpretations that at once deconstruct and recombine Western Classical, Japanese folk and nature's own ambience atmosphere.
Her first full-length album for international release Aura was released on June 24, 2022 to much critical acclaim, with Inori having received a rework by the American avant-garde composer William Basinski and Thor a shamanic techno remix by the legendary UK DJ and producer Matthew Herbert.
Since its release, Hatis Noit has been touring the world, including celebrated performances at MUTEK Japan, Montréal & Mexico, Rewire, Le Guess Who?, WOMAD, and many more.
En 2024 actuará en Barcelona por primera vez con un Live AV en la próxima edición de MUTEK.
