Ahhhh-Mazing work being done by Imogen Heap. You might remember her Shrek2 song at the closing credits? She covered Bonnie Tyler's classic, "Holding Out for a Hero". but don't think she's a cover queen. Her originals have also been features on some of the hottest shows, such as "Hide and Seek" in The Last Kiss, "Let Go" in the film Garden State and "The Moment I Said It" was also used in the episode "Seven Seconds" of the CBS crime drama Criminal Minds.
Imogen Heap is one of the most prolific and unique artisans of music, visual art and plays an astounding number of instruments: keyboards, sampler, cello, array mbira, clarinet, synthesizer, guitar, drums, keytar, nail violin, organ, vocal percussion, Hang, vocoder and of coarse her own voice. I call her musical strain TechnoJazz, but even that doesn't give credit to the experiences she creates with all her being. Yes ... I'm a big fan.
Once again, Imogen Heap is expanding our definition of music in the form of digital gloves that lets her make music by moving her hands and body. Its simply mind blowing. Check our her Kickstarter video here. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mimu/mimu-glove-for-music/
and if you think its a worthy project as I did, chip in. This will change EVERYTHING!
Wanna experience her musical glove song? Check her out on youtube here .... she first spends some time illustrating the mechanisms of the gloves and then uses them to accompany her in her song, Me the Machine.
