Mari* is Worldwide FM’s senior producer and Gilles Peterson’s longtime radio collaborator, and twice a month presents two hours introducing a new wave of artists coming out of Japan with her Oto Nova show. In this episode she is joined by Japanese vocal performer Hatis Noit, who released her enigmatic EP Illogical Dance via Erased Tapes worldwide on 23rd March 2018. Hatis Noit performs live and there will be a discussion about the power of Voice.
As usual, sound creator Yosi Horikawa brings his regular feature, a 30 minute soundscape of field recordings and inspirational music which, in this episode, focuses on the theme of ‘Quiet Scenery’.
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.
Yosi Horikawa is a sound creator who incorporates field recordings into his music.
