Public Records’ sound system is designed in collaboration between Devon Turnbull of OJAS and Jason Ojeda, of VOID, with Isonoe custom rotary mixers in each room.

Its “Sound Room” will host ambient, and experimental live acts on weekdays, with DJs during the weekend; each season will feature a rotating group of resident curators.
