Now playing at Rainbow Records in Newark, DE!
I find there’s no comparison for the experience of staring into a glass full of ice, waiting for its former contents to impart a nice fuzziness on things. Except maybe the moments before the needle on a record player finds the groove, or before a really good kiss. Even so, only the first one is disquieting as well.
Wow. Simply fascinating. Anyone interested in the new technology realm has probably by now heard of 3D printers. I remember when I first heard the term being bandied about in a Popular Science magazine some 9 or 10 years ago before there was any such functional model. But now, these things are real. They can make detailed objects designed on a computer come into the physical world with ultra-precision, created with a mixture of synthetic plastics as the medium.
And, audiophiles take note, 3D printing can now be applied to making ‘vinyl’ records. Granted, the material is not vinyl but a mixture of several synthetic substrates and the sound quality as of now is far from true vinyl, but isn’t this just incredibly interesting? A harbinger of things to come, perhaps. See below for an embedded video of one of these computer-printed records playing some muffled but undeniably recognizable Nirvana.

I first listened to Bartok as a kid because my name was one letter away. Learned so many of his works for piano. I could go on.. But this is instagram, who reads this anyway? #Bartok #record #Vinyl #ucla #schoenberg #music #library Sidenote: Why can’t album covers look like this anymore??????? (Taken with Instagram)
I want to do this.
