To illustrate a project creatively, most designers uses certain ways to compose a narrative – such as texts, images, models, animation and so forth. As an innovative designer, Wai Tang experimented with the notion of “what if” we used Music as a mechanism to create bespoke narratives to different designs. He created an album with Emmanuel Whiteberg for 12 soundtracks that will take you into a journey beyond “just a vision” and the sound encapsulates its own spirit going beyond the space into another level of experiential design. When listening to the music, you will enter into futuristic spaces designed and engineered by Whiteberg x QUAD.
Superimposition was the brainchild of Emmanuel Whiteberg in collaboration Wai Tang of QUAD studio. The two got together in fall of 2019 in London to deliberate on the idea of what QUAD would sound like if they were to make music?
Both being the protégé of David Greene (the poet of Archigram) during their time at the University of Westminster 1993-5, they discussed with David various ways of using poetry to compose a narrative in relation to a context. During this period, they worked on various art installations together based on projected disposition of futurism. Now, 25 years on, they collaborated again this time to make the album Superimposition, a series of sounds using multidimensional sparse arrangements and rhythms in a search for experimental sounds of Tomorrow.
