Laser Cut Record is a part of "cutting record - a record without (or with) prior acoustic information" project at IAMAS iamas.ac.jp .
We produce analog records with vector graphics software and several cutting machines include Laser cutter and Paper cutter. The combination of the software and the hardware enables us to engrave waveforms on a surface of diverse materials such as paper, wood, acrylic, and leather without or with prior acoustic information (i.e. digital audio data). The results could be played with standard record players. The work examines the role of musical reproduction in the age of personal fabrication.
More information is coming soon!
p.s. the video itself is inspired by 3D Printed Record vimeo.com/56017345 < great work!
