What a fun video! You know, I can't hear the name "Heap" without thinking of Uriah Heep, the wiggle-some villain from Dicken's David Copperfield (My favorite of his, even over A Christmas Carol1)

:-)

Why do I not know who this is? I have never heard of her! Has she been around a long time? Cute video though...

I thought it was just me...I'd never heard of her before either...here's a link to wikipedia...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imogen_Heap
She's been 'around' for at least 9 years, but not in a big way until recently...
and I love this from wiki...

"The boarding school she was sent to lacked students wishing to pursue music and Heap clashed with the music teacher. His idea of punishment was to leave Heap alone to learn for herself; as a result she principally taught herself sequencing, music engineering, sampling and production on Atari computers."

pixie...maybe that's why the name Heap sounds so familiar...I think the video is fun, too...it was on a paper crafts site...I thought it was going to be an instructional video or something like that!

Well, its very influenced by mixed media art, hey? It has an eighties feel to me, too... her hair, the music...
