This prestigious award, sponsored by Audio Note, is given to a recording professional who, in the opinion of the MPG Awards board of directors, is responsible for a body of work that has significantly inspired others. Previous recipients have included Chic’s Nile Rodgers, British producer Roni Size, Damon Albarn, as well as engineer/producers Glyn Johns and Sylvia Massy.
Imogen’s many achievements include several internationally successful albums as a solo recording artist and the accolade of being the only female artist to have won a Grammy award for engineering. She's also composed songs and original score for feature films, music for the west-end play ‘Harry Potter And The Cursed Child’ and won a coveted Ivor Novello Award for songwriting.
In recent years she has designed and produced Mi-Mu musical gloves that combine unique gestural vocabulary, motion data-capture systems and user interfaces allowing her to sculpt and manipulate sound on stage as she performs computer-based digital creations.
