London based recording artist Imogen Heap blurs the boundaries between pure art form and creative entrepreneurship. Writing and producing 4 solo albums, one as Frou Frou (with Guy Sigsworth), and collaborating with Jeff Beck, Mika and Josh Groban amongst others, Heap has penned tracks for movies, TV shows and produced the score for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, winning the 'Outstanding Music in a Play' Drama Desk Award.
Counting 5 Grammy nominations, winning one for engineering and another for her contribution to Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’, Heap also received an Ivor Novello Award, The Artist and Manager Pioneer award, the MPG Inspiration Award and an honorary Doctorate of Technology for her MI.MU gloves work: a ground-breaking gestural music making system.
As part of her involvement in making music, Heap has pioneered technologies to humanise the technology surrounding creation, performance business operations for her 20+ year career in music and better reward artists for their work. This includes her work with the MI.MU gloves and Mycelia’s ‘Creative Passport’.
In 2014 she envisioned a flourishing music industry ecosystem through Mycelia and released ‘Tiny Human’, the first song to use smart contracts on a blockchain.
Creating an artist-led, fair and sustainable decentralized ecosystem, Mycelia’s 'The Creative Passport’ provides an ID for music makers to connect digitally with the music industry. With three world tours, sold out Royal Albert Hall and Greek Theatre shows and thousands of 5* reviews, in September 2018 Heap embarked on a year-long music and technology world tour.
