MASON BATES, who appears as DJ Masonic in San Francisco’s clubs and artspaces, curates large, hybrid musical events in extraordinary spaces around the country. A dynamic electronica artist informed by his activities as a symphonic composer, he has worked in a range of venues — from big commercial clubs such as SF’s Mezzanine and Berlin’s Volksbühne, to institutional spaces such as SFMOMA and Miami’s New World Symphony. His works fusing orchestra and electronica have made him one of the most sought-after composers of his generation, and he currently serves as composer-in-residence with the Chicago Symphony.
