Great little piece that is explained here.  ”Directed by Us, which consists of Christopher Barrett and Luke Taylor, this talented team selected 960 separate pieces of vinyl and then measured, cut, and then simulated a waveform to music.  Read and support the blog, see the pics, and watch the video.  Excerpts are provided below:

“..the first task for the pair was calculating exactly how many records per second would be needed. The process of readying the vinyl for filming took seven full working days, which including measuring and cutting each individual piece, as well as hand labelling, numbering and then finally polishing.”

“To animate the wave form, we built it and then carefully removed each individual record. This had to be done very gently as any shift in the position of the sculpture would result in the failure of the animation and as we had to literally destroy each piece of vinyl to get it off, there was only one chance to get it right. Once the sculpture was finally built, the animation process took about 30 hours.”

Nice work by Barrett and Taylor.
