Sound diffusion - the real-time (usually manual) control of the relative levels and spatial deployment during performance - is one of the most contentious issues in the field of electroacoustic music. This article summarises observations drawn from fifteen years of working with the BEAST concert diffusion system in numerous performance spaces in the UK and Europe, as well as experiencing, both as listener and performer, other systems in Europe and North America.
