Cape Audio College Live and Direct is a concept, birthed by Cape Audio College with the aim to assist students in gaining real-world experience in Live Sound. Live sound is a buoyant industry in terms of employment for graduates and for this reason, the college has invested heavily in this area.
The Cape Audio College is the only institution in South Africa that offers PA (public address) equipment for students to use in the field. The only way to learn live sound is to get experience at real-world live events. The college offers students the use of a number of PA systems with varying configurations to facilitate any situation from festival stages to small clubs or pubs and everything in-between.
In addition to the hire out PA systems, the college is the sound sponsor for a well-known live sound venue in Cape Town. This facilitates the training of live sound in a real-world live sound venue. The training culminates in real live shows where the stakes are high with paying customers to satisfy. This ensures students get first-hand experience of how live sound works. The experience our students get at these events is vital in preparing them for the world of work in the live sound industry.
Live and Direct events & venues that we are currently involved in are: The Monster Energy Night Harvest, Super Cup & Superbowl, The Constantia Food & Wine Fair, The Constantia Craft Fair, Groot Constantia Carols Night, The Brass Bell (Kalkbay), Mercury (Cape Town) & Obviouzly Armchair (Observatory).
