Hi everybody!
Two sets of announcements this week.
鉁堬笍聽S贸nar+D:聽I鈥檓 moderating a panel about blockchain & music in Barcelona next June. The event also has an interesting innovation challenge聽and聽startup garden聽which may be relevant to some of you. For a $50 discount, email聽promotions@sonar.es mentioning this newsletter before April 10.*
馃挅聽Patreon: I鈥檝e been playing around with the idea of setting up a page where you can support the newsletter by pledging small fees. In writing today鈥檚 lead article, I pushed myself over the edge. Become a patron of MxTxF聽(or just go vote on the poll).
Have a great week!
Love,
Bas

A band I鈥檓 assisting, called Knarsetand, released a new video inviting you into their dark, twisted, and paranoid world. If you鈥檙e in The Netherlands, make sure to see them live this year. If you鈥檙e not, then just wait a year :-)
