About

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony release an exhilarating album of young, American composer Mason Bates's large-scale works for orchestra and electronica.

Hear the first-ever recordings of his colossal Liquid Interface and the SFS-commissioned The B-Sides alongside Bates's supercharged work, Alternative Energy. One of the most creative and ingenious synthesists of our time, these works show Bates reimagining the dimensions of symphonic music by integrating jazz, techno, drum-n-bass, field recordings of a FermiLab particle collider - and more.

‘This is new music as you always hoped it would be - exciting, beautiful, surprising, and full of a vivid sense of discovery.’ - San Francisco Chronicle

‘Mason Bates's work joyfully embraces a multiplicity of musical worlds... it's music of tremendous imagination and finesse.’
– The Guardian (4 stars)
