With the differences between electroacoustic styles/genres aside, the
creation of a work for a visual or environmental medium (video,
installation, etc) versus a work for a concert or cd medium necessitates
completely different ways of presenting information, because they are two
completely different perceptual experiences.

My use of the word motivation in my earlier statement was perhaps
misleading. I was assuming these differences would have a tremendous affect
on how the artist approaches the construction of the work. This to me might
be a more extreme case of comparing apples to oranges then comparing techno
to acousmatic.
