Genesis – The Artist/s
Genesis were an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey, in 1967. The most successful and longest-lasting line-up consisted of keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins. Significant former members were original lead singer Peter Gabriel, and guitarists Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett. The band moved from folk music to progressive rock in the 1970s, before moving towards pop at the end of the decade. They have made worldwide sales of between 100 million and 150 million records.
Invisible Touch – The Song
‘Invisible Touch’ is the title track and first single from the 1986 album of the same name by the English rock band Genesis. The song is a group composition which featured lyrics written by drummer and singer Phil Collins. Genesis members Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford have both spoken highly of the song in retrospect. Collins has called it his “favourite Genesis song” and Rutherford has called it “a wonderful song: upbeat, fun to play, always a strong moment in any gig”. “Invisible Touch” came about during a jam session, Rutherford playing a guitar riff while Collins improvised the line “She seems to have an invisible touch”. Collins has said he heard the influence of Prince and Sheila E. in the drum machine and his lyrics were inspired by a few people he had known who had got under his skin. Despite liking the song himself, and despite the band’s previous success, he has claimed he wasn’t certain the song would be a hit.
The Human Hand – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a human hand as portrayed on the album “Invisible Touch”. The human hand normally has five digits: four fingers plus one thumb.Fingers contain some of the densest areas of nerve endings in the body, and are the richest source of tactile feedback. They also have the greatest positioning capability of the body; thus, the sense of touch is intimately associated with hands. Like other paired organs (eyes, feet, legs) each hand is dominantly controlled by the opposing brain hemisphere, so that handedness—the preferred hand choice for single-handed activities such as writing with a pencil, reflects individual brain functioning. Among humans, the hands play an important function in body language and sign language. Likewise, the ten digits of two hands and the twelve phalanges of four fingers (touchable by the thumb) have given rise to number systems and calculation techniques.
