It has been a very long time since I was aggressed by an electroacoustic
concert. The problem comes more from new underground electronic artists
that thinks, the louder the better. In the electroacoustic scene (at least
in MTL, we just did one at Elektra festival with no complaints) and even in
students concerts, the sound pressure was really reasonable. One should
also make a difference between a nice tuned sound system with a well done eq
and a last minute set-up on low-fi speakers . Most of the time my ears get
irritate not by sound pressure but more by a strong level of uncontrolled
hi-mid frequency.

But again in clubs or experimental electronic venues it's way to loud! I
always bring some extra ear plugs for the ones I love...
