Concurrently, with the latter part of the ISCM WNMDs, CANZ hosted an Asian Composers League (ACL) festival. The music featured throughout this double festival included new and innovative works from across the international membership of the ISCM and ACL, alongside a rich and varied array of recent music from Aotearoa.
