Microscopic Vinyl Record Grooves – D&AD

Author: Colin | Published: 3/10/10

If this is your first visit to Hard Format, please take a look at all the wonderful designs we highlight here.

Microscopic photographs of two full rotations of the grooves within three different genres of vinyl records. The grooves have been increased in scale from their original scale by 100. This allows the viewer to see and understand how audio is translated when pressed into a vinyl record. The patterns of grooves are explained and compared between genres of music.
