    Abstract/Description

    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.
