I’m not sure how many of you have seen this video, but when I first saw it I was absolutely blown away and felt the need to show as many people as possible. It’s a rehearsal video of Imogen Heap’s “Just For Now” and it looks like it takes place in a radio station of some sort.

What’s amazing about this video is that Imogen Heap essentially builds the effects, vocals, and beats as she goes along with the use of her synthesizer, records them, and then reuses them. What gets created is this simple, beautiful, raw and organic body of work that involves only her voice, her breathe and her hands she uses to layer one upon another in different harmony sequences. Brilliant!

Regardless of where the video comes from, even if you’re not a fan of Imogen Heap’s work (and  I can’t understand how you couldn’t be!) she really brings live music to a new level here. If you are a big fan and you haven’t seen this clip yet, you are in for a treat! I’ve never seen her live but after this “rehearsal” performance, if she ever comes anywhere near Vancouver you can bet I’ll be there!

Seriously? Seriously? Has anyone ever seen Imogen Heap in concert? Is this clip nothing compared to seeing her amazingness live? I’d love to hear.
