A large crowd gathered last night to watch Hexstatic, recently rated the number one audiovisual act in the world by DJMag, perform in Wellington.

Working on a barge on the city's waterfront lagoon, the duo produced a spectacular show that encorporated New Zealand video and music samples, as well as touching on themes such as nuclear testing and sheep.

Part of the Wellington Fringe Festival, Hexstatic's free performance was supported by the British Council and the Wellington City Council.
