We caught up with Hatis Noit ahead of this Sunday’s show with NYX at The Pickle Factory to find out about a few things that do (and don’t) make her tick…

NYX is an electronic drone choir amplifying mindful experiences, psychoacoustics and sound healing through an immersive exploration of ambient, noise and electronic music. In its first series at The Pickle Factory, NYX will be collaborating with four of the UK’s most exciting female experimental artists: Hatis Noit, Gazelle Twin, Iona Fortune and Alicia Jane Turner (with Dead Light), in a series of hyper-live, electronic music meditations. The first event leads with Hatis Noit this Sunday 28th October 2018.

Hatis Noit’s 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. For Hatis Noit, music represents a netherworld with its ability to move and transport us to the other side; the past, a memory, our subconscious. For this event, NYX will compose and improvise ambient sonic landscapes punctuated with acoustic glitching, polyphonic overtone and ambient textures in response to Hatis Noit’s music that at once deconstruct and recombine Western Classical, Japanese folk and nature’s own ambience.
