The diagram in the gallery below shows the system design for the concerts and the first time we used an in the round configuration. From a central, but slightly offset mixing location, opposite speakers are paired.  So audiences in each of the zones have a unique local front left, front right etc.  The whole space can the be treated as a single multichannel listening environment by using just the speakers around the outside.  This configuration is ideally suited to small venues seating to around 100 audience members.  We used the configurations with slight variations in Opus 1 for the opening series of the Melbourne Recital Centre (2009) Oceans (2017).
