IMOGEN HEAP. and her musical gloves that will inspire HEAPSONG #6.
at TEDxBRISTOL 2011 - CREATIVITY SESSION (by TEDxTalks)
According to Wired Magazine: “Heap’s gloves use four basic movements: fist, open hand, pointing and the "rock” sign (fingers in horns). The gloves operate in six modes: voice record, multi-effects, wrist record, drums, synths and rock mode. Heap switches between them with a gesture on one hand to indicate the start of a mode switch, then a second gesture with her other hand to select a particular mode. LED lights on each wrist tell her which mode she’s in".
