What if you could mimic the idea of losing a memory on a playable vinyl record, while at the same time making it fully impermanent and biodegradable?
I had just finished an album themed around memories, and I was curious if there was a way to make a "vinyl" record that would play song that only existed on that record like a lost memory, and the more you listened or "accessed" it, the more it would degrade and fade away. The result would be an object that would become just a memory in the using it to its end result.
Early tests using a moulding method faild due to shrinking issues in the drying process and thus not making the grooves playable.
For the next attempt, I acquired a lo-fi lathed by Teenage Engineering and refined the material a bit more to work within its parameters and found success!
This is just the start, and with proper refinement to the material, and proper EQ on the cutting side, I'm trying to push this to a level that can work on high quality lathes and hopefully have a more flawless playback
