Yeeeeeeeah.... some new deviations after a longer time of absence. I´m so sorry my dear watchers but this time I have a little jewel for you.
Last sunday I was at the concert of Imogen Heap in Cologne.
Well I did not know a lot about her. She was singing on IAMX´ latest single "My Secret Friend" (<- I love that song) and I was listening to all of her albums.
So I was caught by this amazing happy mood song "Headlock". It´s definately my most favourite song if Imogen Heap.
Well ok lets talk about the concert.
Knowing her albums I could not imagine how a concert of her might be and I´m still impressed about this little wonderful event.
We were standing in the front row staring at the equipment on stage and were wondering about what she might do with all that. I mean what would you do with a plushie bird, bells, quigong-balls, a big gong, a plastic paprika and lots of different weird stuff? Me I would say it´s trash. Imogen Heap says it´s music *g*
With those things she was creating her melodies for all her songs by recording it with little mics on her wrists. Using glasses with water to create the sound for her first song. So great. Recording it and playing it in the background over and over again to create an ambience for the song.
I mean I don´t know any other musician who is doing it that way. I´m still so impressed. She was so interacting with the audience and so groundstanding. Close to the fans and very cool due to technical problems she was having at the beginning but it was so charming because she was doin the best out of it. This is what you want to see, that the artist on stage is not super human, that this person is like you and me but only on the other side of the stage.
I don´t know how to describe her concert.... It was so special. You really need to see that on your own. It´s nothing you can compare with other artists/musicians. It´s Imogen Heap.
So enjoy my pictures to get a little clue about the atmosphere and Imogen Heap and maybe you might want to know more about her. You really should go out and find out more about this wonderful woman...
Come in touch with her and dive into her own little world... You will love her I´m sure
