Ruined vinyl under a microscope makes for a beautiful music video

For Nick Zammuto, vinyl scratching isn’t something to be done during a DJ set, but with a craft knife. That’s because the musician likes to cut grooves into LPs and use the resulting jumps as the rhythm for his unique brand of electronica. In order to make the video for single Great Equator, Zammuto combined music with his love of microscopy, using a scanning electron microscope to examine the scratched records up close. The resulting video also looks at scratched CDs, rubber stamps and the odd extreme close up of an insect, which is natural when you’ve got access to an electron microscope. If you’re curious to see the odd mix of high-power imaging and whispering vocals, head on past the break.
