General-purpose Ambisonic playback systems for electroacoustic concerts - a practical approach

At the Ambisonics Symposium 2010 (hosted by IRCAM in Paris), I presented a paper on using a 3rd-order Ambisonic rig to present non-Ambisonic electro-acoustic works with virtual speakers.
The paper is intended as a how-to for people who wish to employ similar techniques for their own concert events. It includes a report on informal listening tests that might be interesting as a starting point for further study.

1st Ambisonics Symposium, IEM, Graz, Austria, 25-27 June 2009.

The Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) calls for contributions to the first Ambisonics Symposium. As many past audio and acoustics conferences have shown, there seems to exist a group of persistent spherical audio enthusiasts. We therefore decided to go ahead and organize the first symposium on this subject to improve and intensify the ongoing scientific discussion on spherical audio. The Ambisonics Symposium will be held 25-27 June 2009 at the IEM in Graz, AUSTRIA.
