"In order to explore the current limits of 3D printing technology, I've created a technique for converting digital audio files into 3D-printable, 33rpm records and printed a few functional prototypes that play on ordinary record players.  Though the audio quality is low -the records have a sampling rate of 11kHz (a quarter of typical mp3 audio) and 5-6 bit resolution (less than one thousandth of typical 16 bit resolution)."

Laser Cut Record

Engineer Amanda Ghassaei, from San Francisco, has developed world's first laser-cut wooden records using songs from Radiohead and Joy Division.

"Stanley the Interactive Piano - This project reimagines the player piano as the world’s first instrument to have a conversation with its audience and field its own song requests. A player piano with a limited repertoire was transformed when Stanley’s piano roll was replaced with hardware that enabled each key to be controlled by a note in a digital music file. People interact with Stanley at festivals, on its Twitter account & over a live HTML5 video feed on stanleypiano.com."
