Hatis Noit is a Japanese vocal performer from distant Shiretoko in Hokkaido who now resides in London. Her accomplished range is astonishingly self-taught, inspired by Gagaku — Japanese classical music — and operatic styles, Bulgarian and Gregorian chanting, to avant-garde and pop vocalists. Her transcendent vocal interpretations deconstruct and recombine Western Classical, Japanese folk and nature’s own ambient atmosphere.
Tipped by The Guardian as One To Watch in 2020, bespoke compositional work ranges from Högni Egilsson’s score for the Netflix series Katla and campaigns for Toyota, to forward-thinking art installations and live, improvised performances that include Milan Fashion Week.
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.
She recently featured on and is currently working on her next innovative album.
