Cazz Blase and Melanie Smith photos watch Imogen Heap reunite her synth-pop past with her soundscape-y present using the marvellous acoustics of the Bridgewater Hall. Imogen introduces the band, who include the other half of Frou Frou, Guy Sigsworth, and explains that she feels its best to perform such introductions early on, rather than at the end of the show. The show is divided into two halves, split by a twenty-minute interval. The first half is mainly comprised of Frou Frou songs, the second mainly solo Imogen Heap songs. After the interval, the band return, with Imogen leading the way in an Elizabeth I style ruff made of wires and LED lights. Her solo work could be regarded as being more soundscape-y than pop, and it comes as no surprise to discover that she composed the soundtrack to the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. As Heap comments; a lot of bands got breaks from that soundtrack.

In the end, half the songs on the album were written on the trip, and the other half were written in England while her new studio was being built. But to do that in London is, like, millions of pounds. It actually has some natural soundproofing because of this wall of air.
