Bas wears both the innovator and analyst hat in music innovation, and in countries from The Netherlands to Bulgaria, to Turkey to Russia and now to Berlin. He shares his insights on how technological realities drive fresh combinations and possibilities, and how we can learn and grow new capabilities from "MySpace moments." He also muses on conversational interfaces like Alexa and how technology choices are changing songs with Playlist Cuts. He closes with suggestions to look at video and short-form content, and to get back to where creation is happening and shares thoughts on Instagram Stories as a place to watch for new ways that people express themselves.
