Imogen Heap



Infamous recycler Steve Lawson provides a link to this quite stunning piece of looping by Imogen Heap (video link is halfway down on the right, it's HD quality so you may want to click Big rather than Bigger, depending on you bandwidth).

I've only ever heard her stuff before and whilst it's fascinating to see her create a piece live, I have to say it's been a long time since I've seen a performer quite so badly in need of stylist.

Now I now this makes me sound shallow and yadda-yadda-yadda it's really about the music not the image, but really - talk about car crash in a dressing up box...

That said she's performing on a radio recording relating to the release of the film The Last Kiss; so guest DJing we have the rather wonderful Zach Braff who as well as starring in the film has also scored it (rather fabulously judging by the details here). Accordingly if you're after aesthetic pleasures to match the sublime beauty of her voice, I suggest you focus on Mr Braff.

That's a very cool link as its got Rachael Yamagata on it. She's top of my list to play Greenbelt next year if I can persaude her to come over, and Greenbelt agree to invite her.
