The special show (her final performance of 2014) will feature an incredible band of people and machines, including the amazing Leafcutter John, performing songs from Sparks as well I Megaphone, Speak For Yourself and Ellipse.
More about Reverb Festival
Described by Imogen as an exploration in living contemporary composers with heavy leanings toward technology, Reverb will centre around four incredible shows at London’s legendary Roundhouse venue, alongside free workshops, talks and interactive sound installations.
You can try on her gloves, sit in the Listening chair and sit with the ‘arboreal lightening’ (a gigantic, interactive tree at the core of the building), become a human harp, see the speed of sound in light, make music with Jelly, hear talks from Adam Stark (Mi.Mu Gloves), Nick Ryan (Propeller Seeds), and Rob Thomas (Run-Time) amongst others!
Not to mention Imogen’s only show (Sunday 24th) this year with an incredible band of people and machines, including the amazing Leafcutter John. There’s also a chance to see her perform on Friday, improvisations with her piano, gloves and voice on the ‘one man band’ night. Two of Imogen’s greatest inspirations Tim Exile (who performed with Imogen on the Ellipse tour) and Arve Henriksen (who played trumpet on Speak For Yourself and Ellipse) are also playing.
Nick Ryan is premiering a piece called Synaes with the London contemporary orchestra and Quayola (visual artist) on Saturday and Imogen’s favourite live piece of music to date ‘black box music’ by Simon Steen Anderson will be opening the festival, along with Imogen’s festival introduction.
It’s going to be an incredible weekend! Come for the whole thing if you can. You can buy Reverb Pass, single tickets or even the uber sexy Golden glove pass and get all access, meet me / come to my sound check and get a pair of golden gloves to wear! It’s going to be a mega weekend after which I’m going to chill, take time off and prepare for motherhood!”
