The Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center has dedicated the last 10 years to supporting art, music, and culture in the Southwest Florida community. Now, the Davis Art Center is taking that commitment even further: this fall, SBDAC opens a brand new Fort Myers recording studio! Get insight into SBDAC’s Six Fingers Studios before it opens to the public.
Six Fingers Studios Origin Story
When SBDAC director Jim Griffith first began renovations on the historic First Street building, he always imagined it as a multi-discipline art center. Part of that vision was to build a multi-use Fort Myers recording studio. Last year, that dream was realized. Six Fingers Studios was completed in 2016, and is set to open to the public in the Fall of 2017. The studio name was derived from a strange hand print with six fingers found on the eves of what is now the Capital Gallery. Next time you walk across the Capital Gallery on the 2nd floor, look up and see if you can find these strange art pieces!
A Unique Downtown Fort Myers Recording Studio
Six Fingers Studios boasts a unique set of sound rooms that are unlike most you’ll find in the area. There are three sound rooms — the Thumb, the Bird, and the Pinkie — that are perfect for multi-track recordings, live instrument tracking, and vocal tracking or voice over recording. What’s more, all three rooms are soundproof, which provides the cleanest, most defined sound capture possible. Built with StudioBricks, these floating dead rooms can’t be matched when it comes to producing commercial quality recordings.
Booking Six Fingers Studios
This Fort Myers recording studio will start booking this Fall. Clients will have the option of booking at Six Fingers Studios along with a studio-hired sound engineer, or renting the space without an in-house sound engineer. Booking with an internal sound engineer is great for artists who don’t have someone in mind to record their work. On the other hand, if the artist has a sound engineer in mind, they can hire externally. The best way to get a feel for the studio is to come and see the space. Now you know why everyone in town is so excited about the brand new Six Fingers Studios!
