Foyer Gallery 1 – admittance with the purchase of a museum entrance ticket to be used by Sunday 20 April 2014

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.
David Adjaye

For the latest event in the programme Meeting Architecture – Architecture and the creative process, curated by the British School at Rome together with the Académie de France in Rome – Villa Medici, MAXXI is hosting a talk with the English architect David Adjae with his brother the composer Peter Adjaye.
The encounter will provide an opportunity to listen to the debate between the architect and the composer over their collaborations, which they like to define as music for architecture, a “permanent library-workshop”. The event will also feature the screening of an anthology of films and original compositions presented for the first time with a live musical ensemble.

The conversation will be moderated by Pippo Ciorra.

David once drew me an image of the musical journey he wanted and I went away and came back the same day with the finished piece.
