PROJECT INFO

Red Bull Music is an international platform that spotlights local rising music communities. Part of these global series, Red Bull Music makes a stop to the San Francisco Bay Area for "Red Bull Music Presents: Oakland". Focusing on tying Oakland's past to present DJ culture, MACRO WAVES was approached to design 2 stages and 3 activation installations.

Paying tribute to Oakland’s underground DIY party scene, this experiential environment explores the legacy sound and style cultivated across generation of Oakland’s creative enclaves. From block parties and sideshows to underground warehouse parties, this experiential environment activates Geoffrey's Inner Circle into a sanctuary space inspired by the reclaiming of spaces for and by the creative communities of color.

MATERIALS & MEDIUMS:

A cultural nod to the past, nostalgic materials were used to give
emphasis to Oakland's vibrant DJ history. Wood as a raw material
reflected the underground component.

Inspired by the culture of "crate-digging"
[spending hours on end searching for the rarest record through dusty milk crates], we chose to
utilize the milk crate as an essential material
throughout the installations.

Utilizing the television as the main
media to translate information, we created a dynamic television stage
that featured live video feed of
the DJ mixing.
