The soundscapes bit of this may mean it's of interest... Sorry if everyone
else already knew about it!

> The desire to understand how music works is not the exclusive
>domain of musicologists; indeed, music is an integral part of cultural
>experience for all people. *ECHO: a music-centered journal* is a forum
>for discourse about music in which voices from a variety of disciplines
>speak. ECHO explores our relationship to music in movement, time, and
>space, with the critical theories of dance, film, architecture, design,
>sociology, and cultural studies. Contributors amplify music's power by
>investing it with new meanings, and give back the sounds they have heard.
>
> We invite contributions about musics and musical experiences from
>all disciplines. Possible areas of interest might include:
> The Urban Soundscape;
> Music and Migration;
> Music and the Body;
> Music-Public and Private.
>Submissions may address musics from any historical, geographic, or
>cultural moment.
>
> As a web-based journal, ECHO can include sound in its articles
>(rather than depending entirely on conventional notation), as well as
>movement examples and color illustrations. New issues are put on-line
>biannually, and each issue contains articles and reviews of both music and
>artistic projects about music, as well as memoirs and interviews.
>Submissions for articles follow The MLA Handbook of Style. A single hard
>copy of all necessary materials can be sent to:
