♫ Where do we go from here? ♫
ここからどこへ行くの?
00:18
♫ How do we carry on? ♫
どう やっていけばいいの?
00:22
♫ I can't get beyond the questions ♫
この問いを 乗り越えることができない
00:25
♫ Clambering for the scraps ♫
ごみの間を這うように進む
00:32
♫ in the shatter of us, collapsed ♫
潰れた私たちのかけらの中
00:34
♫ It cuts me with every could have been ♫
「だったかもしれないのに」という思いに苛まれる
00:38
♫ Pain on pain on play, repeating ♫
苦痛と苦痛の 再生 繰り返し
00:46
♫ With the backup, makeshift life in waiting ♫
替えの利く 間に合わせの人生があるだけ
00:50
♫ Everybody says ♫
みんな言う
01:00
♫ time heals everything ♫
時がすべて癒してくれると
01:06
♫ What of the wretched hollow? ♫
でも この惨めな空虚は何?
01:12
♫ The endless in between? ♫
間にあって際限のない
01:18
♫ Are we just going to wait it out? ♫
ただ終わるまで待つの?
01:21
♫ There is nothing to see here now ♫
ここにはもう何もない
01:24
♫ Turning the sign around ♫
しるしを変えるものは何も
01:27
♫ We're closed to the Earth 'til further notice ♫
追って連絡するまで 世界から閉ざされてる
01:30
♫ A crumbling cliche case ♫
砕け散るありきたりの話
01:37
♫ crumpled and puffy faced ♫
潰れて腫れた顔をして
01:40
♫ caught dead in the stare of a thousand miles ♫
千マイル先から見られている
01:43
♫ All I want, only one street level miracle ♫
私が望むのは たったひとつの 何でもない奇跡
01:51
♫ I'll be an out and out born again ♫
すっかり生まれ変わって
01:57
♫ from none more cynical ♫
今度はもっと疑い深くなる
01:59
♫ Everybody says ♫
みんな言う
02:02
♫ that time heals everything ♫
時がすべて癒してくれると
02:08
♫ But what of the wretched hollow? ♫
でも この惨めな空虚は何?
02:14
♫ The endless in between? ♫
間にあって際限のない
02:20
♫ Are we just going to wait it out? ♫
ただ終わるまで待つの?
02:23
♫ And sit here cold? ♫
ここに凍えて座ったまま?
02:27
♫ We will be long gone by then ♫
そのずっと前に 消えてしまう
02:30
♫ In lackluster ♫
活気をなくし
02:33
♫ In dust we lay around old magazines ♫
埃だらけで 古い雑誌の山に横たわり
02:35
♫ Fluorescent lighting sets the scene ♫
蛍光灯に照らされている
02:39
♫ for all we could and should be being ♫
私たちにありうるすべて あるべきすべてが
02:42
♫ in the one life that we've got ♫
この1つの命の中で
02:46
♫ Everybody says ♫
みんな言う
02:53
♫ time heals everything ♫
時がすべて癒してくれると
03:00
♫ And what of the wretched hollow? ♫
でも この惨めな空虚は何?
03:06
♫ The endless in between? ♫
間にあって際限のない
03:12
♫ Are we just going to wait it out? ♫
ただ終わるまで待つの?
03:15
♫ Just going to sweat it out? ♫
ずっと我慢しながら?
03:22
♫ Just going to sweat it out? ♫
ずっと我慢しながら?
03:28
♫ Wait it out ♫
終わるまで待つの?
03:36
(Applause)
(拍手)

Why you should listen

Classically trained composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer Imogen Heap finds her muse in unlikely places. She's mined sonic mystery from sources ranging from cardboard tubes to cheap samplers to the data gloves--not to mention her own vocal cords.

A relentless experimenter, Heap's latest song cycle is built around some 900 fan-submitted "sound seeds," or samples of everyday sounds. The first six of these "Heapsongs" have been released via her website, and include the lovely "Propeller Seeds," inspired by a chance meeting at a past TEDGlobal. During 2012's TEDGlobal she recorded a song in various locations around Edinburgh, "anywhere that has a piano and they let me turn up with a microphone." She has also composed the orchestral score for the crowdsourced nature film "Love the Earth."

Heap's last album Ellipse earned her a Grammy and Ivor Novello award. This summer marks the release of Sparks, her fifth and most ambitious album to date. Sparks' songs have taken Imogen all over the world from her North East London home studio to the Himalayas via China. This year Imogen is the guest artist-curator for the iconic London Roundhouse venue’s new music festival, Reverb. The eagerly awaited Sparks world tour will begin at Reverb in August 2014. Meanwhile, Imogen will be celebrating her tenth TED anniversary this year.
