In the Netherlands we are currently undertaking SB sound isolation testing 
at the acoustic laboratory at the Eindhoven Technical University. The tests 
are going to be performed on an earth/clay stuccoed wall section in an 
acoustic test chamber. Because the bales are stuccoed we will not be able 
to measure the amount of sound absorption you mention. We would have liked 
to do this too but due to lack of time have decided to focus on the 
measurement we are now executing. If you are interested please contact me.

Besides I am a Capee (form Cape Town) myself.
