北海道・知床出身の女性ヴォーカリスト。バレエ、演劇、雅楽、民謡などの経験を経て、現在は東京を拠点に活動。フューネラルクラシカルバンド「夢中夢」(world’s end girlfriend主宰Virgin Babylon Records)にヴォーカリストとして在籍。

ソロプロジェクトとして自身の声のみで作られた初のアルバム『Universal Quiet』(2014)、ビョークの片腕として知られるMatmos参加の『Illogical Dance』(2015)をリリース。クラシカル、民俗音楽、ウィスパー、ポエトリーリーディング等を昇華した独自の歌唱解釈による声のみの音楽世界を確立し、東京・ルーテル小石川教会にて行われたリリースパーティーでは発売3日でチケットがソールドアウトするなど話題となる。

アート、アパレル、演劇とのコラボレートなど多方面でも高く評価され、瀬戸内国際芸術祭2013、東京都現代美術館10周年記念公演『FLUXUS in JAPAN』(2014)、大館・北秋田芸術祭2014、LIQUID ROOM恒例カウントダウンイベント『HOUSE OF LIQUIDOMMUNE2015』、『Christian Dada S/S 2016 Collection』など国内の大型アート・カルチャー・音楽イベントに参加。東京都現代美術館での『山口小夜子 未来を着る人』展(2015)では宇川直宏(DOMMUNE)とコラボ共演し、動画配信時には1晩で8万ビューを超え話題を呼ぶ。近年の共作・共演にはMATMOS(アメリカ)、YAGYA(アイスランド)、灰野敬二、Tujiko Norikoなど。

Female vocalist from distant Shiretoko, Hokkaido. After studying classical ballet, theater, gagaku (traditional court music), Japanese folk songs and other performing arts, she is now based out of Tokyo. In addition to performing as a solo artist, she is also the vocalist for “funeral classical” Japanese band mutyumu (signed to world’s end girlfriend’s Virgin Babylon Records).

Solo releases to date include her voice-only debut album “Universal Quiet” (2014), and “Illogical Dance” (2015), a work on which she collaborated with long-time Björk collaborators Matmos. Her unique song-world offers transcendent vocal interpretations that at once deconstruct and recombine the DNA of Western classical, Japanese folk, whispering, and poetry reading, creating a soundscape so astounding that tickets were sold out within just three days of her latest release event at Tokyo’s Lutheran Koishikawa Church.

Highly acclaimed for her versatile collaborations in art, fashion and theater, hatis noit has performed at large-scale art and music events, including Setouchi Triennale 2013, the MOT 20th anniversary event “FLUXUS in JAPAN” (2014), Odate & Kitaakita Arts Festival 2014, the LIQUID ROOM NYE annual countdown “HOUSE OF LIQUIDOMMUNE2015,” and the “Christian Dada S/S 2016 Collection” event.

At the MOT exhibition “Sayoko Yamaguchi: The Wearist, Clothed in the Future,” hatis noit also collaborated with Ukawa Naohiro (DOMMUNE) to create a literal overnight sensation that, once the clip was released, attracted over 80,000 views within the space of a single night. More recent collaborations have also seen hatis team up with the likes of Matmos (U.S.), Yagya (Iceland), Keiji Haino (Japan), and Tujiko Noriko (Japan).
