Six Clicks to Imogen

For my weekend Music Hack Day hack I built in app called  Six Clicks to Imogen.   The hack is a game where the goal is to find the shortest path from a randomly selected artist to Imogen Heap.

To build the hack I used the Musicbrainz artist relationship data to find all the artist connections, and plotted the graph with the JavaScript Infoviz toolkit . The game has about 55,000 artist nodes that are connected to Imogen by millions of artist relation ship edges.  The hack is live, so go ahead a play the game:

Thanks much to Hannah for contributing excellent design suggestions for the app.
