Voyage to Another World with ermhoi & Hanae from Climate Live Japan
The Creative Climate / Episode 16
In this episode of The Creative Climate, Perry’s CCP colleague Kurt Langer joins as a guest host and interviews two participants from Climate Live Japan. Singer & track maker extraordinaire ermhoi, and Hanae Takahashi, one of the young organizers of the event, join the podcast to discuss climate change, music and how it all connects.
Climate Live is a youth organized international concert series that took place online Saturday April 24th, 2021. Concerts were organized in 30 locations around the globe to raise awareness about climate change. The Japan team produced one of the largest of the events, broadcasting it live on YouTube from LOFT in Shinjuku. Climate Live International is planning more concerts around the world for October 16th, 2021. Climate Control Projects has been honored to be serving in an advisory role to the international team since 2020.
ermhoi is an Irish Japanese track maker and singer. She creates her own world and expresses it through a variety of languages and musical genres including pop, ethno, dance and improvisation. Her first album “Junior Refugee” was released in 2015 through the Salvaged Tapes record label. ermhoi, although essentially a solo performer, is also a member of Black Boboi and Millennium Parade. Her latest release Ep, “Thunder” is available on all streaming services.
ermhoi fans will love hearing her give (possibly) her first interview in English, though it honestly sounds like she’s done it a thousand times before. She discusses her creative process, her connection to climate change, and also allows us to share the title track from her most recent EP “E” as our “Hottest on Record.”
Hanae, who in addition to being the country representative of ClimateLive Japan, is also a member of Fridays For Future Tokyo and studies art and media communications at university. The best places to follow her work with ClimateLive are here:
