Illogical Dance EP
on March 23 2018 via Erased Tapes
“Mixes childlike purity and digital pointillism in 'Illogical Lullaby' — something like Meredith Monk toying with computers” — The New York Times
Japanese vocal performer and latest signing Hatis Noit has announced her enigmatic debut EP for Erased Tapes, Illogical Dance, released on March 23rd 2018. The arresting 4-track record creates unique song-worlds with transcendent vocal interpretations that at once deconstruct and recombine Western Classical, Japanese folk and nature’s own ambience atmosphere. Illogical Dance also features Björk-collaborators Matmos, who were so impressed with Hatis Noit’s recordings, they volunteered to edit the lead track Illogical Lullaby.
“The human voice is our oldest, most primal yet most powerful instrument. I use it to describe nature’s many sounds, a language that isn’t logical. Yet it forms a beautiful conversation that isn’t restricted to words like the human language is. I want my music to remind us of that.” — Hatis Noit
Previously only available in Japan, Illogical Dance will receive a worldwide release on 23rd March 2018 including a first edition on 12” vinyl.
