Thank you all so much for coming! Here's a link to the replay:

This was another step in developing new accessible performing technology, and pushing ourselves musically and artistically to be a vehicle for these important stories. Thank you so much for your support!

If anyone is interested in hosting a hybrid groupmuse event or want to be a part of creating this new technology feel free to shoot me a message, my email is [email protected]

Looking forward to the next one!
