PROJECT BACKGROUND:

Red Bull Music commissioned MACRO WAVES to design the environment for the 3 year anniversary celebration of CLUB CHAI, highlighting Oakland’s globally reaching dance party, label, radio show and curatorial project, founded by DJs/producers, FOOZOOL & 8ULENTINA. Connecting their sonic origins and global aspirations for the future, CLUB CHAI centers diasporic narratives, women, and trans artists, DJs and producers while hybridizing non western sounds with club music.

APPROACH:

Consulting with CLUB CHAI for inspiration on art direction, MACRO WAVES conceptualized and fabricated installations with digital animations to transform Public Works in San Francisco. The final direction took 1,000+ attendees into a visceral landscape that tied traditional Middle-Eastern elements with a futuristic underground rave setting.
