David and Peter Adjaye, Dialogues, Vinyl

In July 2016 The Vinyl Factory and Music for Architecture released Dialogues, a limited edition vinyl-only album showcasing the ongoing architectural and sonic collaborations that have been developed over the last decade between music composer Peter Adjaye aka AJ Kwame and his brother, the award winning architect David Adjaye OBE.

This album explores the creative process of the two brothers’ collaborations; each track corresponds to a piece of work by David Adjaye and traverses the intersection between music and architecture, between sound and space. It is a series of site specific architecture and sound collaborations that spans from Reflections of a Golden Dream, the soundscape for the Stephen Lawrence Centre in Deptford, through to Three Views of Light which forms part of the Genesis Pavilion in Miami, Florida.

The project examines the creative relationship between David and Peter, and the profound inter-connection between the human experience of architectural structures and the musical journey. Throughout history, this connection has been explored and commented on, from medieval architects, through to Renaissance designers. Dialogues looks to re-establish and further this link between the two disciplines.
