Hi everyone, 
Two lead pieces for you this week. 
One in response to a brave girl speaking up about her experience as a woman in the music business at a recent conference. 
The other is about the concept of transhumanism & music’s part in getting to that future. 
Looking for connections to people at DAW companies who do technical partnerships. Also looking for people in labels / management who are using messenger bots in their artists’ campaigns. 
If that’s you - reply to this email. 
Enjoy the reads. Much love, 
Bas
