Hi Andrea,

While Kevin Austin said everything I was about to say
(well, not exactly..but I wish I was going to say all
that ;))...are you also thinking about sound
installations? Many of these are designed to be
literally immerse soundscapes etc.

If so, there are more than a couple of books about
this subject...though, I haven't seen any that could
be classified as theoretical or of a high level of
academic rigor. Nonetheless, they do chronicle some
artists' work in this area and many come with
ironicallyonicly.)

The book I have is "Site of Sound" edited by Brandon
LaBelle and Steve Roden. I'm sure a google search
would turn up others.

Also, there is a sort of link-webpage by a guy named
Janek with lots of links to sound-installation type
sites and artists (Lucier, Schaefer) etc.

Good luck, and please let me know how your research
comes as this is an area of personal interest to me as
well.
