Bio - Mason Bates
The music of Mason Bates fuses innovative orchestral writing, the rhythms of electronica and techno, and imaginative narrative forms brought to life by cutting edge sound design. A composer of symphonic music who often includes live electronica in his orchestral music, he has become known as an artist who moves fluidly between those two worlds - performing on electronic drumpad and laptop, for example, under Maestro Michael Tilson Thomas at Carnegie Hall in The B-Sides at Carnegie Hall, or integrating members of the San Francisco Symphony into an evening of DJing and live electronica at the SF club Mezzanine. Awarded both a Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome and an American Academy in Berlin Prize, he is a member of the acclaimed New York-based Young Concert Artists.
