Jonathan Prager presents two acousmoniums (loudspeaker orchestras):
Acousmini: a small loudspeaker orchestra (46 loudspeakers on 25 tracks) that is operated by a computer, 3 sound cards and 3 MIDI controllers. The composer/performer/interpreter can diffuse stereophonic or multiphonic works on this acousmonium.
Acousmaxi: a heterogeneous loudspeaker orchestra (53 loudspeakers on 48 tracks) specially developed for stereophonic diffusion. It contains 3 groups of loudspeakers controlled by 3 mixers. Jonathan Prager details the musical possibilities of each system.
