Heap’s mother and her father separated when she was twelve. Heap attended the private, Quaker, Friend’s School in Saffron Walden. By age thirteen, she had begun writing songs. She had already played music from an early age, and is classically trained in several instruments including piano, cello and clarinet. She later taught herself to play the guitar and drums, and subsequently two unusual percussion/idiophone instruments, the array mbira and the Hang. Heap did not get on well with the music teacher at her boarding school, so she principally taught herself sequencing, music engineering, sampling and production on Atari computers. She went on to study at the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon, South London.
Imogen Heap Bio
Heap recorded an acappella version of the Leonard Cohen track, “Hallelujah”, for the season three finale of The O.C., and her “Not Now But Soon” was included on the original soundtrack for the NBC show, Heroes. Heap recently announced that she will no longer be scoring the latest Disney motion picture about flamingos. She said on her official website that “It just didn’t work out I’m afraid. I said yes to one too many things this time . . . it just became impossible to do.” However, Heap also mentioned that she is hungry for a score after her next album is finished. In October 2009 Heap appeared on the BBC 1 program “This Week”, talking about politics and her love of “Tweeting” on the social networking site Twitter. Imogen Heap has toured numerous times during the past few years. 3 years ago, she toured the USA and Canada twice, and in November/December 2009, she began her Ellipse World Tour with a 17 city North American leg, which received great reviews. The Ellipse Tour went to Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia through February/March 2010 and returned for a bigger North American leg in Spring 2010.
