Fun with Vinyl

Vinyl will always hold a special place in my heart. So it’s nice to see people doing interesting things with the magic plates.

Linyl

Linyl are discs of light drawn from photos of past experiences that can be played on a special record player to create an ambience. They are inspired by our nostalgia for a time when the experience of music was slower and more environmental.

Analogue Vinyl Sampling

Experimental analog sampling with modified vinyls. Sectors from a vinyl record are cut and replaced by pieces with exact shape from other records. When played in a vinyl player the needle follows the grooves from both sectors creating sampled tunes or loops.

Some Things To Read

Yes that’s right…. TO READ. No nice videos or pretty pictures. Save them to Instapaper, Read It Later, or whatever you use… but you should get stuck into these.
