‘I wasn’t looking for control, I was looking for freedom.’ Imogen Heap at TEDxCERN

On 9th October Imogen Heap and Adam Stark from the mi.mu team visited CERN for a special TEDx event, hosted on a particle detector on the The Large Hadron Collider.

Imogen gave a talk about the development process of the gloves and the inspiration which originally started the project. She performed brand new acapella versions of two classic songs using the gloves for looping and percussion and augmentation. Adam and Immi also presented the gloves for TED attendees for an hour session allowing people to try them on and really understand how it feels to control sound in a 3D space, playing with our new chord machine and drums and the jellyfish.
