Ola Restaurant Miami
For Chef Douglas Rodriguez's triumphant return to Miami, Geoxie United was contracted to provide a ‘neoLatino’ soundtrack for the Design District’s first incarnation of Ola, the crowning matinee for Chef Rodriguez’s world famous ceviche repetoir, nearly a year before it's debut on Miami Beach.
Designed to reflect the Spanish slanted nature of the menu and warm modern feel of the interiors, 30 hours of music were compiled from rare classic salsa jazz and newer tropical flavored electronica to enhance the forward yet familiar attitude of the restaurant's culture.
Completed on retainer over the course of four months, three separate installations were made and 6 programs created to correspond to the rotating moods of each sitting. Finally each program was randomized internally to provide aural variety and spontaneity.
