   Perhaps it is possible to do this by running the call through an RTP 
proxy (there are various) that supports inserts muxing outside audio
feeds into the media stream?  Then you would just need to implement
some sort of middleware layer to map Asterisk SIP channels to corresponding
call flows in the RTP proxy and run outside commands to make this happen, I 

   That said, I can't find any information specifically on this subject from 
a given source.  But try looking at various open-source RTP proxies.

   At present, it appears Asterisk only has the capability to "barge" into a 
channel on the software layer (or Zaptel kernelspace, in the case of 
ZapBarge()) for the purpose of listening in.
