Unsere Abteilung Kurioses haben wir ein wenig vernachlässigt. Doch die Herstellung von Schallplatten via Lasercut und CNC-Fräße ist definitiv ein Beitrag in dieser Kategorie wert.

Shades of Grain nennt sich das gemeinsame Projekt der Berliner Designer und Studios The Constitute und Pfadfinderei. Für eine Live-Performance haben diese Schallplatten fräsen und lasern lassen. Mit Hilfe der Grundstruktur von Amanda Ghassaeis Lasercut-Technik und einer CNC-Fräßmaschine kam Musik zustande, die man als Drone-Ambient bezeichnen kann.

Shades of Grain is an audiovisual performance using cnc machined phonograph records and high contrast monochrome projections.Grinding drone and noise soundscapes meet grainy black and white visuals.It´s to be showcased on an oversized rig with a massive low end to make it a physonical experience. The projections have to be strong and bright!

The Droneplates have been cnc machined out of various materials. There are two different types of plates: loops and tunes. The loops repeat a certain noisey beat into a deep and mesmerizing mood. The longer the loop runs, the grainier it gets through the abrasion of the material. The tunes have been made possible with the laser cut records framework from Amanda Ghassaei. By these wonderful bits of code we were able to transform wav. files in spiral vector curves to cnc route them in the next step. We used laser cutters and milling machines to explore the sonic capabilities of different processes and materials. Though many approaches failed, a few of them came out really well and have been included in the live set that we played on the 3rd of october as support act for The Bug. Which was a great honour and a strong lesson in how to set up a massive drone piece. The promoters of the festival set up two massive rig towers that made the performance pure physical joy.

Vinyl herstellen lassen könnt ihr auch bei uns. Allerdings nicht in der Fräßmaschine. 😉
