A Steve Jobs musical is coming in 2017

An opera about the life of Apple founder Steve Jobs is scheduled to open in Los Angles in 2017, The Los Angeles Times reports.

“The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” will focus on the late entrepreneur’s life, as well as his relationship with his wife Laurene Powell Jobs, and his daughter who he rejected for much of her childhood.

Work on the opera will start this year, with the first workshop to be held in September.

Composer Mason Bates is behind the project. He’s also a DJ, and previously created a piece of music, “Omnivorous Furniture,” which combines an orchestra with electronica music.

Here’s what Bates’ previous work sounds like:
