Orchestral composer, DJ, curator...Mason Bates has no need of a day/night split personality: he combines traditional virtuosity and symphonic color with techno beats, electronica, and improvisation in his orchestral works. Mothership features five compositions, ranging in inspiration from oceanic depths to Pima Indian chant to a hybrid technological art of the future. Not to be missed!
