Duncan  Speakman

Duncan Speakman trained as a sound engineer at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, and is now based at the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol. Often working with mobile audio and locative media, he creates narrative experiences that engage audiences emotionally and physically in uncontrolled spaces.  From intimate in-ear stories to large scale performances, his award winning projects include sound installations on Guangzhou tram networks and loudspeaker symphonies in Christchurch, performative audio walks in Saitama, radio pieces for BBC Radio 4 and augmented reality theatre performances in Eindhoven.
