Winning this trip meant that I was going to test my music readiness and gain way more momentum on my music journey. This year "Virtual Reality" was a very big theme in tech and music. I learned so much about music for gaming and film, I met a lot of cool people and got to listen to a talk by Garth Brooks. I also listened to book writing talks and collaboration on music talks. This is where the whole idea of "Music and" just came together for me. I wanted to write a book and be a SXSW speaker.
