THE CRYSTAL DJ BOOTH
Music has a huge impact on my creative process…if I haven’t been in my studio a while, I have certain tracks that get the creative juices flowing again…. I have some buddies with fabulous taste in music, (and with the talent to play it!) who I reach out to once in awhile to throw me something new, and it’s hard to explain what it is about a song, but some just go in so deep that they trigger a wild flow state and I am lost for hours.
When my mind was first captivated with these ideas for crystal artworks…I thought of our music makers…of creating something mystical to experience while we are on the dance floor, and that elevates the energy and love flowing from the DJ’s. I had started some conversation about it to see if it resonated with anyone…but as it was all in my head and there was nothing even vaguely like it online, it was understandably difficult for people to imagine.
Lately, I’d been listening to Steven Pressfield’s incredible book on the creative process The War of Art. He talks about when the muse comes to you, when an idea lights you up so much that you mustn’t think about the why, the how… but just that you need to honor the muse and create the thing that sets your cells on fire. Well, I dreamed of making a DJ booth full of crystals and setting the dance floor on fire! And now it’s here and has been doing so for a while!

Here is my Crystal DJ Booth… my gift to the music makers, the dancers, the festival goers, the mountain explorers, the crystal lovers. Now that it is a tangible thing that people can see and experience, it is finally understood! For many, it took that real experience of creating music from within it, or dancing in front of it, to really understand it’s power to inspire.
Press PLAY to see The Crystal DJ Booth in action. The imagery was taken at various parties and festivals and edited by Pedro of Katalyst Media.
Designed to fit in your lounge, at 2.35m high and 3.6m wide and built in 6 sections, it is transported on a medium trailer and takes 3 humans under 45 minutes to install. It comes complete with a TV screen for the DJ's to set up graphics, or in the case of a special event party, stream something to fit your theme, or even a place from where you can zoom your friends and family from afar into the crystal cave!
Inspired by the Cave of Crystals in Mexico, with some of the largest crystals ever found, the longest being 11.4m! These incredible gypsum crystals are 300m underground, and the cave sits around 58degC and 95% humidity! The mine is now closed, hopefully protecting this incredible and mysterious cave for the future.
