Rebekah Wilson - Software Developer

Thanks to her work being completely based online, she's been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to live in over 10 countries in the last decade, speak a few languages badly and to have met with and learned from the engineers of some of most premier sound stages and studios around the world including Abbey Road, Skywalker Sound, Technicolor, Disney and Warner Brothers and our own stunning Park Road Post. Working daily with international voice talent, studios and musicians helps her to understand and serve the direct needs of remote production and recording: and what started with a focus on sound is now an increasing interest in high-fidelity transmission of both image and sound for the purposes of real-time collaboration

With an unwavering belief in the potential for technology to improve our lives through increasingly sophisticated means of communication, she worked to bring wireless communications to stricken eastern Christchurch after the 2011 earthquake. She is also a fierce advocate for women and girls in technology, hosting New Zealand's first RailsGirls programming workshop in Christchurch in 2013 and consulting with numerous non-profits around the globe for best practices in digital efficiency.

Work-wise, her current technical goals are to both continue making the tools more accessible - especially for education purposes - and more sophisticated as her work continues to lead the way forward for sound and film studios to work remotely with each other in real-time with security and stability. The magic of sound and science combined has kept the spark alive: and to give structure to her experience as a developer of remote possibilities, she's returned in 2016 to Victoria University to do her Masters in Composition to complete her thesis on Telematic Music, i.e. playing music together over the Internet in Real-Time.
