Abstract: The Imaginary Menagery was a large scale intermedia work that was commissioned for the opening of the 2008 Adelaide Festival of Arts. Featuring experimental electro-acoustic band Hidden City with additional members from the Zephyr String Quartet , the work combined Artificial Intelligence with free improvisation. Samples and pre-composed score fragments for the string players were triggered across a wireless network of 5 computers in response to the improvisations of saxophonist Derek Pascoe. The projections that freatured on the walls of the hall throughout each set were generated through a combination of data mining and Game Theory using MaxMSP & Jitter. These utilised the same algorithms as the interactive software used in the performance.
