Looking for a way to turn an ancient recording medium into something useful? Here’s an idea: combine it with an even more ancient recording medium. Aleks Kolkowski took his vintage vinyl record cutter to Manchester’s Futuresonic 2008 festival and used it to carve one track’s worth of music into old CDs for festival attendees who brought him a digital audio file. Stick the CD on a 45 RPM turntable, and you can groove to the grooves, old school. Oh yeah.
