From Imogen Heap’s new album titled Sparks.

More Imogen Heap from WalnutAndCarrara.

Imogen Heap demomstrating her remarkable musical gloves developed with the “nerd underworld” as she describes MIT’s Media Lab.  (Sort of reminds one of Pixar’s One Man Band, right?)

Heap’s Mi.Mu project on Kickstarter (video here) was underfunded but we’re certain to see more of this remarkable technology.  Heap’s official video for the song Me the Machine featured this wearable tech.  Read more at Create Digital Music.  

Imogen has released a new album titled Sparks and was recently in session on BBC Radio6 Music.
