Yesterday evening saw 500,000+ fans take to their Facebook pages to watch Imogen Heap perform a 90-minute live event which saw her perform Heapsong 6 aka “Me, The Machine”. To coincide with Earth Day Imogen enlisted 25 cyclists to power the lights for the show along with a field full of solar panels.
The performance of “Me, The Machine” included the use Imogen’s ground-breaking musical gloves. Developed, created by and for Imogen with a team of over 10 (and expanding) friends and experts from professors to scientists, “The Gloves” give her maximum flexibility and mobility in creating her music on stage. Using these gloves, Imogen records and manipulates sound, plays virtual instruments and builds up tracks, all with gestures. She can also amplify acoustic instruments via mics embedded in the gloves – all wirelessly!
