Those of you who follow Imogen Heap's impressive social media outpourings, will be aware that she's had a pair of gloves made (built?) to allow her to control aspects of her performance using had and finger gestures.
She performed last Wednesday at Wired Magazine's The Future Of Music Event in London. Only recently finished, the gloves had their first outing at TEDGlobal in Edinburgh.
From a witness at the event (thanks Matt for pointing us to this video):
Very into electronic music for twenty plus years. She is critically bland , maybe the i pod generation hasn't listened to big science by Laurie Anderson yet. heap is a godd name, cause its a heap ok........

She can be a little bland, and much of her stuff will quicklly seem dated, but she also has some great moments. I totally agree about the Anderson/Big Science comment.
