Hanaé is a producer, recording and performance artist born in Miami and based in New York City. Her work combines folk shintoism, survivalism, and organic technology, making use of strings, electronics, and taiko drum to create music that’s been described as “Princess Mononoke meets Bjork.”
The debut single “All Of This” is off of Hanaé’s upcoming EP, End to Begin, due in mid-2020, which deals with planning for a future full of precarity, themes of loss, solastalgia, and impending ecological collapse.
Hanaé has opened for Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Japanese Breakfast, Shea Diamond, and toured the world, playing keys for Cruel Youth. She’s been featured on Zoom Lens’ artist, Exitpost’s recent album, Two Dreamers, and composed soundtracks for Augmented Reality pieces for the High Line and The Public Theater. The track was recorded with notable audio engineer Sabine Holler of Barrie and Sessa, with Vivian Ludford and Jordan Lee on strings, and Yoko Nakahashi on taiko drum. The video was created by Umico Niwa with a digital plant connected to facial tracking.
