Red Bull soundsystem/Music box stage


The Music Box Stage has grown considerably over the years, featuring loads of live music and ground-breaking performances by some of South Africa’s finest musicians, producers and DJ’s. This year, with a heavy focus on cutting edge electronic and urban music we see performances by dj’s and producers serving you with only the best; dubstep, breaks, glitch, electro, hip hop, techno and drum and bass (provided by Homegrown). The line up will ensure a musical journey like no other electronic festival stage in South Africa, starting with your favourite electro madness on Friday and ending of on a great dub and techno Sunday.

As is the community spirit of Earthdance, the Music Box stage is a big collaboration between some of the most forward thinking musical promoters in Cape Town.

The Red Bull Studio has long been a supporter of Eathdance Cape Town, and if it wasn’t for them the Music Box stage would not be what it is today. Once again, the Red Bull Studio team are partnering with Earthdance Cape Town, GoodTimes Events, and sSHADOWORKSs to create yet another amazing outdoor experience.

This time the Studio is upping the ante by bringing along the Red Bull Soundsystem, which was recently built and showcased as a part of the Maximum Signal Control event at the Assembly, which will supply the super-sonics for the Music Box stage. Already tried and tested over three nights and the Assembly, it will be the fist outdoor event the Soundsystem will travel to and it is sure to impress eager revellers.

Earthdance has always strived to create an event where artists have the opportunity to experiment and push themselves to do what they do best, and this stage really delivers on that every year without fail.

The language of space. Bryan Lawson


This unique guide provides a systematic overview of the idea of architectural space.

Bryan Lawson provides an ideal introduction to the topic, breaking down the complex and abstract terms used by many design theoreticians when writing about architectural space. Instead, our everyday knowledge is reintroduced to the language of design. Design values of 'space' are challenged and informed to stimulate a new theoretical and practical approach todesign.

This book views architectural and urban spaces as psychological, social and partly cultural phenomena. They accommodate, separate, structure, facilitate, heighten and even celebrate human spatial behaviour.

* Helps to reconnect your everyday implicit knowledge with your professional conceptual knowledge
* Gain a greater understanding of clients by questioning the values you commonly hold
* Promotes easier communication by taking the abstract idea of 'space' and placing it in real terms

Tom, I think that this talk, which relates music with architectural and environmental context, is important for your first chapter, in setting up the historical evolution of the spaces of music and technology.  Please watch, it's pretty good....
