Scratching beats into the locked groove of records

by | August 19, 2013 | In Music, Technology, Videos Comments Off on Scratching beats into the locked groove of records

This needs to happen more often.

Vimeo user Nick zammuto has figured out a really ingenius way to use media for reasons other than it was intended. It is also an ingenius way to get amazed music nerds to buy your record. He’s been using household implements to scratch beats into the locked groove of vinyl records. Scratching beats. Into records. The template he uses is screenprinted, cut out and placed on the record. Then he uses a pushpin to put a small notch onto the record according to the quarter, eighth, and sixteenth note divisions on the template. It’s really cool.

From Nick:

“I’ve invented a method of scratching rhythms into the ‘locked groove’ at the center of vinyl records. This kit includes a unique hand scratched vinyl LP of our first record, with a hand screenprinted cover including templates for making your own scratched rhythms on other records in your collection. The music portion of the LP is unnaffected, of course. Includes five templates for common time signatures. All are signed, dated and silkscreened by me here at home in VT. The first 45 copies are on spectacular blue splatter vinyl.”

So there.

Sidenote: Who saw his awesome studio shed?

Hauntingly beautiful. Reminds me of the Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins I used to listen to when I was younger.

From Youtube:

Australian singer Gotye has become an international sensation with his haunting song, “Somebody that I Used to Know.” He makes his KCRW debut with a live set of soaring art-pop songs. Watch / Listen to the full session here: http://www.kcrw.com/music/programs/mb/mb111115gotye

Sometimes you hear the sampled before the original. I don’t know how many times I heard this song before I knew about it’s composer. Read up on him. Moondog is dope.
