An unconventional method of handcrafting sound loops produces a unique audio-visual artifact.

Niklas Roy and Jari Suominen‘s new DIY project involves burning records with a laser cutter to produce music. The duo used the laser to etch record grooves in a piece of plexiglass that resulted in a full length loop album called “Back In” with 8 unique tracks.

Here’s more about the project from Niklas Roy’s site:

We used a vector program to draw the record. With different line colours, we could modulate the laser’s intensity. We also experimented with different depths of the groove within one loop (track 6). Track 2 was something like a random noise experiment where the needle would jump in a different way over the grooves, each time the track is played. So every track has a different idea.
