The composers mix their sounds from the center of the space, and the audience is free to choose their own listening location, and to move within the space to hear the music from different vantage points.
SSSS#5 features music by the following Bay Area composers: Sam Genovese, Will Gluck, Kim Nucci, and Kristian Dahlbom.
