Last Friday, Luke performed in "The Imaginary Menagery", an event he directed as part of the opening of the 2008 Adelaide Festival of Arts. The event featured 3 sets by experimental electro-acoustic band 'Hidden City', with additional members from the Zephyr String Quartet
Attracting an audience of around 1000 people in Elder Hall, we were thrilled to perform in front of such a big crowd. We are grateful to the Elder Conservatorium of Music for their kind support.
The three sets featured free improvisation, and Luke's interactive software, which triggered samples and beamed pre-composed score fragments to the string players accross a wireless network in response to Derek's saxophone playing.
Projections generated by Luke through a combination of data mining and Game Theory also featured on the walls of Elder Hall throughout each set.
A video of 10 minutes of the third set can be viewed here
