DIY Analog Vinyl Sampling?

Today we have a creative, yet odd, use of vinyl. A designer is using a laser cutter to essentially splice together records!?

Designer and generative photographer Ishac Bertran‘s latest project is taking sampling in bold, painstaking new directions. With a nod to the analog days of yore, when sampling music meant having to physically cut and paste audio tape together, Bertran’s decided to transfer that technique to an even older music technology: vinyl records. How? Well, by quite simply cutting pieces out and refitting them into different records. Nothing to it. And after some trial and error (and burnt vinyl), he found the best technique for doing this was with a lazer cutter.



That's nothing compared to

That's nothing compared to the record player that plays cross-sections of trees. Beautiful & creeps music!
