why not? I would just start to have a look at other sound applications 
try to understand what they do. That's actually how I did it. And then 
can get yourself a working installation of alsa and try to build the
existing documentation. In the meantime there's even a small primer,
how to open a sound device and make some noise.

Cheers, Alex
