Imogen Heap Quotes
"I just love crafting and shaping sounds. Actually, many of the sounds that I work with start off
as organic instruments - guitar, piano, clarinet, etc. But I do love the rigidity of electronic drums...
I would record live drums, and then I would spend a day editing them to take the life out of them.
I like to breathe my own life into these sounds, and I do try to keep the 'air' in the music.
Some people think electronic music is cold, but I think that has more to do with the people listening
than the actual music itself."
