Evaluating soundscapes as a means of creating a sense of place.

  We report an empirical study into the creation of, and
response to, a soundscape of a computer centre. We contrast
the use of presence questionnaires, as means of assessing the sense of being-there, against a more phenomenological
approach. We conclude that we have been able to create a
strong sense of place but uncovered a number of experimental / procedural issues.
