Velvet Underground - “Sunday Morning”
Lasert cut wood record. I love this.
Amid the ongoing 3D printing controversy, Amanda Ghassel has used the technology to create several records— both with a 3D printer and a laser cutter— out of various materials including wood, paper, and acryllic. The quality of the audio is warped by the material and naturally low fidelity (the bit depth hovering between 4-5, compared to the standard 16-bit of a typical mp3), giving strands of audio strange re-interpretation. So far, she has created 3D printed records of Daft Punk, Joy Division, and New Order songs, and laser-printed LPs with songs by The Velvet Underground and Radiohead. Ghassel has also provided vector files so anyone with access to a laser printer can create their own LPs. When choosing a song, she recommends tracks “that are full in the lower to mid range, but also very sparse overall” Check out some of the audio from these creations below and click here to create your own.
