Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony release an exhilarating album of young, American composer Mason Bates' 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' supercharged work, 'Alternative Energy'. One of the most creative and ingenuous 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.

Personnel: San Francisco Symphony, Michael Tilson Thomas (conductor)

"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

"Wildly inventive, as only Adams can be." - San Francisco Classical Voice (on John Adams' Absolute Jest)

"Other orchestras hardly touch this music, but in San Francisco it has become standard fare, and the authority of the playing was staggering." - The New Yorker (on American Mavericks)
