The first public performance of the gloves took place as a live broadcast from Imogen Heap’s garden for Earth day 2012. An interactive audience of fans gathered to power the event using bicycles in a geodesic dome, while Imogen prepared to perform on a 360 stage, livestreamed to 40,000 viewers online. The pressure was on as Imogen finished writing the first ever ‘glove song’ the night before the event and the team worked overnight to put all the final touches in place for the performance itself.
