Apparently you can use a record cutting machine to make a record out of more than just vinyl.
Thanks to the magic of the internet, about six different sites have informed us of something that went down at the FutureSonic festival. A man named Alexi was on hand to create what he calls recycled CD art. He used his record cutting machine to take an audio file that the customer gave him and etch it into an old CD.
This made this old CD/DVD/piece of plastic perfectly playable on a turntable. But it is completely out of the reach of most people. Unlike a CD burner which you can get for $15 on ebay, a Vinyl Cutting machine from Vestax will set you back about $10,000.
Despite how wicked this is, unless you’ve got a machine like this in your garage, or can get one at auction, it’s probably not exactly practical.
But damn it’s cool.
