Imogen Heap

Imogen Heap is a British eclectic, eccentric and innovative musician considered by some the epitome of a digital diva. Her talent spans from the craft of songwriting to elaborate, live multi-instrumental improvisations, building on a unique voice, classical training and unusual tech-savvness. Self produced, independent, engaged, she blurs the boundaries between pure artforms and creative entrepreneurship and uses her knowledge of the web and social networking to communicate and collaborate with her loyal following in pioneering ways.
Much more than a studio rat, she is an accomplished performer having toured the worldwith 4 albums: iMegaphone, Speak for Yourself, Details (produced/written with Guy Sigsworth in their duo, Frou Frou), and the 2009 Ellipse earning her a Grammy and Ivor Novello award. Her graceful tunes, such as signature track, ‘Hide & Seek,’ have populated movies and TV shows, and frequently accompany dance and theatre performances. More recently, Heap is being sampled by a whole new generation of young rappers and producers. Now, in demand and at the peak of already 15 years of diversified career experiences, she is enjoying exploring how her ‘musical ecosystem’ can have a positive impact by getting involved in creative projects that think big and outside the box.

    Dear Imogen!

    I’m a huge fan of your work – not only musicwise, but tech-wise also.
    I’ve been following your carreer for years, and some of your innovations caught my attention lately.

    I run a Hangarian music blog, where I wrote about you prefering to make music together with your listeners – http://torok-kati.blogger.hu/2011/04/28/imogen-heap-crowd-sourcing – (which was one of my first articles), and I also wrote about The Gloves – http://torok-kati.blogger.hu/2013/01/10/imogen-heap-music-gloves

    They are in Hungarian, but I found that the press in my country neglected (or at least didn’t find) these topics. Feel free to share my links, I hope You like them.

    I’ve read some news about a jogging-app you were working on this Spring. I’d like to write about it on my blog, but I couldn’t find correct information about it’s progress. Is it still under development? Are you still testing it? How is it going?

    I would be more than pleased to get some updates from you.
    Thank you in advance!

    Best wishes,
    Kati Török
