Kennedy Center Composer-in-Residence

PLUG IN TO A NIGHT OF TECH-INDUCED BLISS!
DJ/composer extraordinaire Mason Bates
brings the orchestra into the digital age
with a sampling of his most innovative hits.

His electro-acoustic suite The B-Sides 
drops into five surreal soundworlds, 
from a Detroit warehouse to a NASA spacewalk.

The Rise of Exotic Computing
which premiered at a nightclub,
uses infectious riffs and techno rhythms 
to evoke a self-replicating computer.

Even the purely acoustic Violin Concerto
features an array of influences from beyond the concert hall, 
surrounding the virtuosic playing of Anne Akiko Meyers
with percussive and imaginative symphonic effects.

So grab your glow stick and let the NSO led by Hugh Wolff
spin you into a state of electronic euphoria.

SIP THE LIGHT FANTASTIC
Roll up to our bars anytime, grab a drink
in a souvenir cup, and bring it into the show.

THE PARTY STARTS EARLY--AND STAYS UP LATE

Cue up your perfect night out with FREE extras:
A high-energy Millennium Stage performance at 6,
and more cool spinning by "DJ Masonic" and a local DJ
before and after the concert.

Performance timing: 60-75 minutes with no intermission
