Design - Delivery - Performance

 An occasional series of afternoon and evening events focussing on Instrument and Audio Tech.
The intention is to gather software/hardware tech companies and performers to speak about their experiences, followed by a Q&A session.
The hope is to inform, encourage and inspire those with an interest in what goes on in bringing tech to market, how performers work with companies in improving the musical/artistic experience, and the changes through the years.

Might even be a bit entertaining as well...
