IMOGEN HEAP
self-produced, independent, engaged, Imogen Heap blurs the boundaries between pure art form and creative entrepreneurship. Writing and producing, Heap has developed a strong collaboration with her loyal following both on and offline in recognised, pioneering ways.

She has been nominated for 5 Grammys, winning one for engineering and another for her Taylor Swift contribution on the album 1989. In her self built home studio also sits an Ivor Novello award, The Artist and Manager Pioneer award and an honorary Doctorate of Technology. Imogen is an ambassador for the PRS foundation and for Drake Music Organisation (leaders in music, disability and technology)

At TED Global 2011, Imogen first publicly performed with her Mimu Gloves – cutting edge gestural music ware, developed for her studio and stage work along with a team of engineers and scientists. The project has attracted worldwide attention from artists to Universities and within the press for humanising music tech in performance.
