Imogen Heap is perfect soaking in the bath music and here is her new video for You Know Where To Find Me. Not that I’m sugesting you read my blog in the bath, unless of course that is your “thing” and what you like to do, but I am asking you to switch up your bathing music every now and then.
If you don’t believe me here’s her new video.
In June 2012, Artangel invited Imogen to ‘A Room for London’, a one-bedroom (boat) installation that overlooks the Thames from the roof of Queen Elizabeth Hall. First she installed a customised audio visual egg-shaped ‘listening chair’ into the Southbank Centre below, to gather information from passers-by about what the river Thames meant to them. Then, having absorbed this material, she spent a night in the boat and began to write the latest Heap Song, ‘You Know Where To Find Me’.
Talking about ‘You Know Where To Find Me’, Heap says;
“There are many different personalities in this song because people experience the river in different ways. A place for play, for rest and for some, to visit the ashes of their loved ones. The Thames has its dark sides too; in lives and love it’s taken.”
Having part of the lyrics and music intact, the next stage was to record piano parts. As ever continuing to collaborate, Imogen turns to Edinburgh based, piano-owning Twitter followers to let her into their house, wear their clothes and record elements of the song. This was done in just one day in Edinburgh, involving 13 pianos, filming the music video as they went. Heap improvised and wrote the song on these pianos and finished it off at her studio in Essex.
So there you go. Do you listen to music in the bath? What do you think of Imogen Heap?
