Duncan Speakman

Duncan Speakman’s research consists of how sounds can be a part of the experience of visiting a city or a social environment. In addition, he investigates how mobile technology can be ‘hacked” to initiate different (a more engaged) interaction between the user and his immediate environment ( instead of solely using technology to connect people from a distance, because this has a isolating effect in the immediate environment).

His most recent work namely consists of compositions with text and music. These can be heard and experienced through headphones in the public area. See the subtlemobs he made with Circumstance, his company.
