Imogen Heap & Her Musical Gloves at Upcoming CTM Festival

Imogen Heaps Musical Gloves on Dara O Briain's Science Club

Published on Dec 30, 2012

"Imogen Heap demos her (x-IMU-based) musical gloves to Dara on his show, Dara O Briain's Science Club broadcasted on BBC2, Dec 31, 2012. Imogen also did a short performance of her track 'Me The Machine' but time limitations meant this performance was heavily edited. A longer (but still edited) performance is on BBC i-player:

"In 2009, when Kelly Snook invited Imogen to visit to MIT's Media Lab, she realised the tech had now made this possible when she tried on Elly Jessop's musical glove. "Elly's glove could record and loop the voice with a few intuitive hand gestures. A million possibilities flooded my imagination! I was quite emotional and as soon as possible I changed my touring and recording life cycle to get to work on creating my dream setup that felt ever closer than before."

She called up Tom Mitchell, who'd worked with her before in coding her Monome for a Letterman performance and told him the idea. He loved it and got funding from the University of Western England (UWE ) to do a research paper on the work. She asked 5DT for a set of gloves to get going and began experimenting."

Details on the CTM Festival:

"Throughout the week, we'll welcome artist and developer presentations from Keith Fullerton Whitman, Imogen Heap, Lucas Abela, Tim Exile, Ali Demirel, Native Instruments, Ableton, and others to be announced.
