Only Expansion is a new artistic experience being developed by Duncan Speakman.

The work takes you on a sonic walk through Bradford, combining the sound of your immediate surroundings with recordings
of distant locations. As you walk, custom mobile technology records the world around and remixes it into new shapes and textures, voices of passers-by become choirs, the squealing brakes of buses become melodies.

The walk is an evocative reflection on how we engage and interact with environments near and far, and the entangled relationships between them.

This project is a continuation of work developed in collaboration with Lydgalleriet in Bergen. It forms part of Speakman’s current PhD research into how sound might offer us new ways of understanding current ecological thinking, exploring recent shifts in our conceived relationships with the natural world.
