A few months back, our Kate Magoc explored the classical-meets-electronic world of PSO composer-in-residence Mason Bates. Bates straddles the classical and club worlds, working alternately under his given name and his DJ name, DJ Masonic.
Tonight, DJ Masonic goes to work at Static — the electronic-music club in the Strip — as part of the Mercury Soul event there. He'll be joined by members of the PSO to play pieces by other composers — including Stravinsky — and to premier a commissioned piece Bates wrote. It's the fourth such event in the country.
For more info, see the PSO's website. Admission is $20.
