Imogen Heap is returning to Dublin on 7th November as part of a special tour showcasing Mycelia's ‘Creative Passport’ technology.
English singer and technology innovator Imogen Heap has announced her first world tour in eight years, which will bring together artists, fans and the industry in a unique format.
Imogen Heap's creative pop music has taken on a number of forms throughout her career. She released her first solo album iMegaphone in 1998. Her second album followed in 2005, and produced hit track 'Hide and Seek', famously featured in The O.C. She has since released two more studio albums, in addition to composing for film and theatre, including the score for play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
The 40-city tour is comprised of concerts with the reformed Frou Frou, an electronic duo consisting of Heap and Guy Sigsworth, as well as talks, workshops and exhibitions. Additionally, the tour will be used as a platform to launch ‘Creative Passport’, a new musical database from Mycelia, Heap's blockchain technology project.
The ‘Creative Passport’ – which is unique to each music maker and which enables creators to link their work – contains personal information, IDs, acknowledgements, works and business partners, while incorporating blockchain technology and ‘smart contract’ elements to enable quick direct payments, and simplify commercial partnerships and creative collaborations.
Imogen Heap with support from Guy Sigworth (Frou Frou) will play Vicar Street on 7th November. Tickets cost €40.00, on go on sale this Friday, 3rd May at 10AM.
