Imogen Heap Explains & Demonstrates Her Musical Controller Gloves

Imogen Heap explains the controller gloves that she’s developed to use as a human interface for her live performances in this newly released video from her presentation at a 2012 Wired Magazine event. The hybrid controller/instrument gloves are controlled via gestural user interface, hacked Xbox Kinect and Ableton. Via a series of learned gestures, she can loop, sample, control instruments, reverb, pitch and the like.

Imogen and a team from the University of West England developed the gloves over a period of two and a half years. Watch her amazing demo and performance below.
