We’ve got a real treat for Maker Camp’s field trip Friday today at 11am PST. We get to hang out with two of our favorite musicians as they step out of their studios to share their thoughts and insights on making music. Imogen Heap, a Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and composer will show us how she crafts and sculpts sounds. Zoë Keating lays down her cello to talk to campers.
Why “not on tour?” Because they’re not on tour and so they have time to spend with us!
Imogen is known for her work as part of the musical duo Frou Frou and her solo albums, which she writes, produces, and mixes. She has produced three solo albums, the latest of which is the 2009 Ellipse, a North American chart success that earned Heap two Grammy nominations, winning Best Engineered Album, non-classical. She is a multi-instrument artist. She plays keyboards, array mbira, cello, clarinet, guitar, drums, keytar, nail violin, vocal percussion, synthesizer, sampler, organ, Hang, vocoder. She taught herself sequencing, music engineering, sampling and production (on Atari computers).
