Analogue Sampling With Laser Cutting and Vinyl Records


Thu, Oct 6th, 2011 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

Using old vinyl records, ingenuity and a laser cutter, Ishac Bertran engages in analogue sampling by literally slicing pieces from a record and replacing them with slices from others.

Driven by my devotion for vinyls and analog processes (perhaps a bit of Dj wannabe too), and emulating the audio tape cut&paste technique, I tried to make the vinyl sampling a bit more analog -- literally cut and paste pieces of vinyl to create samples.

Cool idea, although the hipster in me cried a little when I saw him slicing through perfectly good LPs.
