Tonight was Imogen Heap‘s concert. She put on a great show once again. The opening acts were good too. They also came out to help play around half of Imogen’s songs. I especially enjoyed Tim Exile. He has assembled some hardware and software to record live samples for looping and modifying. His final song was created by passing a wireless microphone around the audience. He recorded whatever words or sounds were made into it and created an interesting song. The video of him performing “YouTube Killed the New Wave Star” can give you an idea of his process, though he creates all of the samples himself in this case. I purchased the CDs from both opening acts.
