Imogen Listening Chair was in the foyer of the Royal Festival Hall during the weekend of 16 – 17 June 2012, and was used to crowdsource material to inspire a new song, ‘You Know Where To Find Me’.
Immi wrote the beginnings of the song during her time aboard the boat and then performed the piece so far, in a surprise live show for the audience watching the stream on live relay in Southbank Centre.
Watch the performance here.
On Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd June Imogen will take part in ‘A Room for London’ – spending time in a Boat perched on top of Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on the River Thames in London.

Imogen’s live performance takes place from 7pm BST on 22nd June and can be watched live at www.aroomforlondon.co.uk and on screens in the Clore Ballroom at the Southbank Centre.
