Analog Vinyl Sampling from Ishac Bertran on Vimeo.

As a fan of mash-ups (and to you music purists I say, haters gonna hate), I found this music experiment by Ishac Bertran pretty fascinating. Taking the traditional cut-and-paste slicing method used to create different loops and mixes on reel-to-reel audio tape machines, Bertran took it one step further into our analog past by applying the same method to actual vinyl records. With some freshly purchased “second-hand vinyl records [of] different music styles: Supertramp, Wagner, Paul Anka, Chicago, Lil Jon,” a hot wire cutter, and a bit of dexterity and ingenuity, Bertran constructed a mash-up vinyl record Frankenstein’d together with other vinyls. You can hear the result for yourself in his video (above).

His latest is the one below, based on the original CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. It’s not quite as good as the incredible MARY POPPINS edit…

For this video, some excellent goofballs ran a bunch of news clips through Auto-Tune, T-Pain-style, and the results are hilarious: Part two is no less comedy gold: [via Boing Boing.]
