Why Imogen Heap Inspires Me

By May 25, 2011 December 16th, 2012 No Comments

I’ve been listening to a lot of Imogen Heap recently after re-watching a couple youtube videos of her making her music live. I then stumbled on this youtube video where she talks about some of her inspiration for her music. After watching the first bit of the video, you will instantly realize her passion for music. What really intrigues me about her music is that it is a little off. It’s a mix of house and her voice, but it’s not quite house music. It’s beautiful.

I think it’s also that I have a tendency to find beauty and interest in things that are slightly off. Of course I like when things sound and look beautiful; however, when it comes to art…I like it to be off beat and interesting. No vanilla please!

I love the fact that she notices certain sounds such as the sound of her fingers on the ballaster and the sound of kitchen sink. It’s really sweet and I appreciate when others notice the smaller things that often goes unnoticed.

So the lesson here is, be interesting and take time to notice the little things in life that often go unnoticed.
