Casey O'Callaghan is a philosopher specializing in perception, and perception of sound in particular. He's got some interesting essays online. Reading philosophy is sometimes a bit alien for me, especially when the topic is one in which I have some intimacy. The philosopher's perspective, and I suppose it's necessarily so, is at once reduced and sophisticated. I can recommend O'Callaghan's essay on Hearing Recorded Sounds.
