MSCLVR Interview Series #050 with Stas Tushinskiy, CEO, Founder of Instreamatic!
This episode of the podcast is #050 featuring Stas Tushinskiy – CEO and cofounder of Instreamatic – a San Francisco based startup that are at the bleeding edge of instream audio advertising – pioneering the first class of voice-activated advertising which could have a very meaningful impact on your streaming music experience and the music industry as a whole!
So first off – I have to thank Stas again for recording with us in less than ideal audio recording conditions – we were at SXSW and our “studio” for the day a bar/lounge called Rainey Social – and while the atmosphere was quick cool I will admit that the acoustics were – let’s just say – challenging at times 🙂
I am sure most listeners will be able to tune out the SX/Austin background noise and Stas handled like a champ. He is a startup CEO from Russia born in the former Soviet Union so I’m sure podcast background noise doesn’t rank high on his “things that perturb me” list.
Nevertheless – I appreciate Stas for that and of course for sharing the story of how Instreamatic are at the forefront of an audio advertising revolution to be – this is a potential breakout year for the company so don’t be surprised if you or your Alexa loving friends are are interacting w/ audio ads by using your voice (as opposed to click of your mouse or finger on touch screen) – all perhaps naturally integrated into your listening experiences on Spotify, Soundcloud, or any other application or environment where audio is the primary medium.
It’s a green field opportunity and I personally am excited to see how Artists eventually adopt this technology to tease new music, tour dates, or really whatever …the audio ad can now help you simulate a conversation w/ Beyonce…are you grasping the import of this??
Ok … enough out of me – let’s get into the conversation w/ the CEO of Instrematic – Stas Tushinskiy!
