"Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap

Where are we? What the hell is going on? Oh right, we're here with our podcast device, listening to an episode of Strong Songs.

On this episode, Kirk dives into Imogen Heap's one-woman choral masterwork "Hide and Seek," taking a closer look at the technologies and processes Heap used to get that bewitching sound, her striking use of breath and dynamic contrast, and the many subtle ways she took the oh-so familiar "four chords" and made them sound unique.

Written by: Imogen Heap
