Imogen Heap: Hide and Seek
on 10 August 2014
The classically trained, Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist Imogen Heap is best known for her 1998 album iMegaphone or early oughts songs like "Hide and Seek," but in recent years she's become more synonymous with her interest in modern technology. A prime example is her Mi.Mu gloves, which create sounds through gestures. This year London's Roundhouse tapped Heap as curator of Reverb 2014, for which she's selected "contemporary composers who have heavy leanings toward technology"—like Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto and vocal improviser Maja S. K. Ratkje—for the festival.
