Hi everybody! 
This week’s overarching theme is interactivity. Whether it’s about engaging with music directly, with artists through messenger apps or bots, by gifting during live streams, or in the new frontier of mixed reality, enabled by innovations in virtual & augmented reality. Read on! 
Add to calendar: I’m speaking about digital revenue streams at Play & Produce in Ghent, Belgium on the 19th. Ping me if you’re around. 
Enjoy! 
Love, 
Bas
