There has been a surprising return of vinyl records in recent years with the once abandoned medium getting more than a nostalgic boost. In fact it is the music industries fastest growing segment, surpassing even the most popular free streaming services, and now a man in Germany has pushed the concept to a new level by creating a working record made out of concrete instead of vinyl.
While it surely won’t take on actual vinyl, the concept shows the versatility of the record. The record measures only 6mm thick and is able to carry a tune, although probably not up to the standards of those flocking to vinyl for the sound it produces.
The first song to be pressed into concrete? “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by the very appropriate Rolling Stones. Check out a sample of the sound below.
