SOUNDFUSE

“What happens when you take the experience of a rock concert, a night out at the symphony, and a fuse them together with electronic music? Simple: you get Mercury Soul.”

PIN DROP ACOUSTICS

“The Mercury Soul series is an interesting merging of worlds: club culture and electronica sharing space and time with classical music in a fluid and collaborative way.”

THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“At a time when symphony orchestras nationwide are trolling for audience magnets — the type of new material that can lure members of generations X & Y along with older subscribers — Bates just might have that bait.”

THE MIAMI HERALD

“In spite of his young age, one can already perceive in Shwartz the lineage of the true ‘maestros.'”

THE ATLANTA CONSTITION-JOURNAL

“Patterson’s visual additions were at once properly subdued and brilliant, elevating music and text into a complete and sensory experience.”

SYMPHONY MAGAZINE

“Many artists in one of these worlds have dabbled in the other. But Bates is the first to carry on two careers in tandem, and win credibility in both arenas.”
