Following contributions from L.A.-based avant-garde composer William Basinski and legendary London producer Matthew Herbert, Hatis Noit’s Aura Reworks series continues with a re-interpretation of Jomon by producer Preservation (Mos Def, RZA, MF Doom) and cult NY rap duo Armand Hammer (billy woods & ELUCID).
Today, migration seems to be encoded into everyday habits. As so many of our minds and bodies aggressively globalise in unprecedented ways, previously fixed “genres” and identities of any kind are constantly being dismantled, made redundant, and born anew. It’s from this space of flux that American composer and vocalist Sheherazaad derives song. Produced by Arooj Aftab, her forthcoming mini-album, Qasr, is set for release on March 1.
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.
