OPUS415 No.5 will feature over 25 mostly Bay Area composers, and 75 performers, including The Paul Dresher Ensemble Electro-Acoustic Band (acting as 'house band'), Gamelan Sekar Jaya, Mark Gray with cellist Joan Jeanrenaud, and visiting guest David Del Tredici.  The marathon's 10 hours of mostly music will present a diverse mix of works that bridge the gap between the streets and the university.

At OPUS415 Marathons, unconstrained improvisation brushes up against elaborately notated scores.  Baroque period instruments mix with high-tech computer-generated sounds.  Young and emerging composers share the stage with established artists. By building bridges between these diverse voices, OPUS415 showcases, celebrates, and energizes New Music in the Bay Area
