Bob Erickson was interested in this in the '70s (he called it "stream
segregation" after Van Noorden). "Loops for Instruments" and
"Percussion Loops" are two pieces I recall. Paul Dresher messed about
with this.

Steve MacAdams has done a lot of research in this area.

Handel discusses it in "Listening."

It pops up in some of Nancarrow's work. "Canon X" is good.
