Vinyl record plays stop motion animation as it plays music

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Design on Friday 27 April 2012

Now this is incredible! Designer Michael Hansen has developed this remarkable double-sided vinyl record with beautiful, intricate designs on it that act like a stop-motion animation as the vinyl spins on the player. As our friends at Design Boom have noted: ‘Both the album cover and the surface of the vinyl are designed specifically for the song recorded on that side. The images on the record itself (a 33 1/3 RPM) create moving animations when played on a turntable and lit with a strobelight at 50 to 60 Hz’. Best thing we’ve seen all year.

Andreco’s Fake Religion animation

Ilana Kohn Reader Find

By Ilana Kohn in New Art on Thursday 22 October 2009

Presented only with stills from Italian artist Andreco’s stop-motion animation Fake Religion, I was really loving it, purely based on its stark, surreal imagery. I was pretty disappointed not being able to locate the actual video, but that aside, I simply adored the images. I really would have loved to have seen the video presented in the breathtaking setting of the Palazzo Re Enzo in Bologna. Such a beautiful contrast of aesthetics between the dramatic murals and vaulted ceilings of the Palazzo and the stark graphic imagery of Andreco’s animation.

By Lost At E Minor in New Film on Tuesday 9 October 2012

Frankenweenie was originally written by Burton in 1984 and is a parody of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. After 28 years, it will be shown in Australian theaters this Summer.

Thistle: awesome music video by Hundred Waters

Callum Twigger Reader Find

By Callum Twigger in New Music on Friday 21 September 2012

The Pinata’s doom is a cruel metaphor for determinism. It’s pretty much a Christ-figure for the cruelty of children; a sacrifice consecrated to violence and gluttony by millions of nine-year-olds at birthdays across the planet. Florida four-piece Hundred Waters’s video for the single Thistle celebrates the liberation of the beast and its subsequent existential meandering. […]
