Six Fingers Studios Opens at Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center

Bands and singers are welcome to rent space in the new recording studio.

The next time you’re in the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, a band may be performing live—but you won’t hear a thing. And that’s good. The center teamed with Spanish company StudioBricks to create an in-house recording studio. Six Fingers Studios opened in mid-
October to the general public to rent. Studio manager Angela Patane, who also fronts a punk band called The Young Dead, calls the resulting sound “pristine” and the studio soundproof to the point where you wouldn’t know a band is recording down the hall. The addition is a way for the center to deepen its connection to the arts community—not just showcasing artists but helping them create. Oh, and the name? It comes from the six-fingered handprints of paint discovered on the eaves of the Capital Gallery during renovations. “We decided to keep them,” Patane says. “It’s a little gritty, a little rock ’n’ roll.”
