THE VINYL FACTORY and MUSIC FOR ARCHITECTURE
Dialogues is a study of the unique architectural and sound collaborations developed and completed over the last 10 years between music composer Peter Adjaye aka AJ Kwame and his brother, the award winning architect David Adjaye OBE. The two brothers are artistic collaborators and this study investigates the creative process shared by them and how they inspire each other united by their experiences with sound. The project sends out the universal message that there is much to be explored in the intersections and fusions of music and architecture. It reveals the great influence and creative vein they mutually share. Dialogues is about the communication between different disciplines in new ways that are descriptive of a journey through sound and space.
Released on The Vinyl Factory Records / MusicForArchitecture Records: A limited Edition (300 copies) Gatefold Vinyl only Album containing a 32 page booklet.
For my generation, sound is part of the process of visualising space. It’s an experiment. I’m interested in understanding a composer’s reactions to a space, in hearing the echo.
What Peter does is “sound architecture”. I give Peter a project and ask him to react. Architecture is a narrative. This project is like a DNA experiment. There’s a construction. What would be the script for this?
