Ideally

At left you can see our proposal for a more or less "normal" diffusion context. Of course this context will always depend on a high amount of factors like the space itself, the material of the surfaces, the quality and number of loudspeakers or the number of people in the audience. That is why experimentation in the actual place where the performance will happen is always necessary. For an 8 channel system (the "minimum ideal" amount of channels) we would need:

- 8 loudspeakers. At least 4 of them should be identical. They can be active, or have a separate power for each pair of loudspeakers.
- Depending on the venue, one or two sub-woofers (S) are desirable.
- All cables, connections, power points and extensions necessary, as well as people for setting things up and down.
- Lighting and a light operator. Doriana will show him/her the plan for light design.
- We will provide a lavalier microphone, a wireless system (transmitter/receiver), a computer, an audio interface with 8 outs and a MIDI controller with faders.
- A digital mixing console is always welcome.
- It is necessary to have at least one rehearsal in the performance space.

Loudspeakers 1-2 operate as stage monitors for mixed works. For acousmatic works, they become a "distant" stereo pair. These can be on the floor or mounted on stands. Loudspeakers 3-4 should be on the floor. Loudspeakers 5-6-7-8 should be on stands.

If you have less resources than above, we still can do a concert including mixed works, however acousmatic works will not be spatialised with less than 4 speakers. At left you can see what we consider to be the very minimum equipment for a performance. Production must consider:

- 2 identical loudspeakers.
- 1 stage floor monitor.
(- Sub-woofer is always welcome.)
- All cables, connections, power points and extensions necessary, as well as people for setting things up and down.
(- Lighting is always welcome.)
- We will provide a lavalier microphone, a wireless system (transmitter/receiver), a computer, an audio interface and a MIDI controller with faders.
- It is necessary to have at least one rehearsal in the performance space.

Of course this set-up is not going to deliver the same results as a multi-channel diffusion system, but it's OK since we can still play. It is really suggested an extra effort from the production though to get at least another, similar pair of loudspeakers, so a surround image can be achieved.
