There’s an opera for that

Pasatiempo - - PASATIEMPO -

Santa Fe Opera presents the world pre­miere of The (R)evo­lu­tion of Steve Jobs on Satur­day, July 22. In this is­sue, com­poser Ma­son Bates dis­cusses his work on the opera, which ex­plores tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion and the im­pact it has on hu­mankind. A DJ and the first com­poser-in-res­i­dence at the Kennedy Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts, Bates is known for in­cor­po­rat­ing elec­tronic sounds into his sym­phonic works. With li­bret­tist Mark Camp­bell, Bates brings Jobs’ com­pli­cated life to the opera house. The com­poser will be per­form­ing the elec­tronic seg­ment of the score him­self at ev­ery per­for­mance. On the cover is a 1984 pho­to­graph of Jobs in Wood­side, Cal­i­for­nia, by Nor­man Se­eff.
