A expedition undertaken to discover, learn, meet and document the ideas and people behind the controls of vinyl record production.

Recorded over 6 weeks, travelling through Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the UK – For The Record exposes a number of notions about why vinyl is such an indelible medium and how it continues to remain popular in the the face of opposing format change.

Special thanks to all the people who helped and collaborated on this documentary.

Additional thanks to Creative New Zealand, for support funding.

3D Printed Record

Posted by Bodicker On Dezember - 20 - 2012

I’ve created a technique for converting digital audio files into 3D printable 33rpm records and printed some functional prototypes over the weekend. These records play on regular turntables, with regular needles, at regular speeds, just like any vinyl record. The audio on the records is very low resolution (as you can hear), it has a sampling rate of 11kHz (a quarter of typical mp3 audio) and 5-6bit resolution (mp3 audio is 16 bit).

Video: Birdy Nam Nam Live @ Vieilles Charrues

Posted by Bodicker On September - 4 - 2012


Heute Turntablism Overkill. Da dürfen meine momentanen Helden Birdy Nam Nam natürlich nicht fehlen. Keine andere Turntable Crew vermag es die Kunst des Turntablisms mit Elektronischer Musik so überzeugend zu verquirlen wie Birdy Nam Nam. Und das stellen sie in diesem Live Mitschnitt von 2009 mehr als eindrucksvoll unter Beweis. Fette Lucie hier!!!

Aufbau eines Modem Dial-Up Sounds

Posted by Bodicker On Juni - 2 - 2012

Chrrrrrrrpffchhrrrrrrrrr chrrrrrrrkrrrrrr…. So in etwa hörte sich das früher an wenn man sich via Modem in dieses “sogenannte Internet” einwählte. Das verbinde ich persönlich mit den Achtzigern und so grandiosen Filmperlen wie “War Games“, das “Datenklo” fällt mir da auch nochh zu ein… glorreiche Zeiten in denen die Computertechnik fast noch eher Science Fiction für den Hauptteil der Weltbevölkerung war. Wie dem auch Sei, John Pemberton hat sich die Mühe gemacht und auf Soundcloud einen “sezierten” Dial-Up Modemsound bereit gestellt.

This is a choreographed sequence that allowed these digital devices to piggyback on an analog telephone network. “A phone line carries only the small range of frequencies in which most human conversation takes place: about 300 to 3,300 hertz,” Glenn Fleishman explained in the Times back in 1998. “The modem works within these limits in creating sound waves to carry data across phone lines.” What you’re hearing is the way 20th century technology tunneled through a 19th century network; what you’re hearing is how a network designed to send the noises made by your muscles as they pushed around air came to transmit anything, or the almost-anything that can be coded in 0s and 1s.


Background, Speculation & Recommendation on the Loudness War

Posted by Bodicker On Februar - 23 - 2012

Earl Vickers AES speech about valuable and informative background information about the sense and non-sense of loudness insanity on the 129th AES Convention, Nov. 2010. Earl points out that there is no real reason for hyper-compression – also from the commercial view point. PLease watch and forward if you agree. Very informative video!
