Hatis Noit shares epic animated video for Jomon

16.1  2024


Today Hatis Noit shares the epic animated video for her song Jomon, for which she collaborated with Berlin-based Taiwanese-Japanese media artist NAOWAO. The visual piece weaves a tale of a profound ritual where different living beings come to life, led by the guiding hand of a shamanic Hatis Noit. Together with NAOWAO’s character design, computer animation, and ethereal sequences, Jomon emerges as a myth, where the spiritual and natural worlds converge in a captivating celebration of life and death. The ritual depicted in the film draws inspiration from two core concepts — Hatis Noit’s name origin and the ancient Jomon culture of Japan, dating back approximately 16,000 years.

The avatar of Hatis Noit in the video represents youthful energy and a pure connection with nature, with her hair and attire infused with elements from the Jomon period. The patterns, echoing those found in Jomon pottery, draw inspiration from natural elements like water, wind, and air, reflecting the lush landscapes and ritual artifacts seen throughout the film. The execution of the garment was created in collaboration with SGI Creator and Maaike Van Den Abbeele. Jomon blurs the boundaries between the living and spirit worlds, guided by Hatis Noit’s enchanting voice and the mesmerising singing and dancing of the creatures. This video's visual style embodies a realm of stylised fantasy, immersing the audience in a mystical, otherworldly experience that taps into our shared human spirit.
