    We hosted a pilot for Music Tech Fest Wellington at Sounds Aotearoa together with The British Council and the New Zealand Music Commission. Korg, Ableton and Baboom presented hack challenges and the winning entries were phenomenal. Prizes included software, synthesisers and even dinner with Kim Dotcom.
