The recording studio on the 3rd floor of 508 Park will be available to everyone from professional musicians to students. You can record in the same location where Robert Johnson, the Light Crust Doughboys, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, the Crystal Spring Ramblers, Black Boy Shine, W. Lee O’Daniel and his Hillbilly Boys, Lolo Cavazos, The Chuck Wagon Gang and many others recorded. We plan to have both digital and period analog recording. Come experience how recording was done in the 1930s prior to the invention of magnetic tape and mixing boards.
The Sculpture wall
The Encore Park Sculpture Wall is the first realized aspect of our commitment to our unique location at the crossroads of the past and present. In 2012, The Encore Park Project Committee commissioned Brad Oldham and Christy Coltrin to create original artwork for the amphitheater walls that denote the former perimeter of the Columbia Film Exchange building.
