If the low heat makes the vinyl easy to work with, then why not apply the geometric cuts to get some extra height, right? And then, why not, slap a light bulb inside of it.
Sure, let's do it.
Step 1: Mark the Record
The cuts here are all about circles with gaps in them. Here, I'm drawing eight lines across the record, four for each orientation of the cut circles.
Also, I picked records based on them having songs that have equal length and thus regular circles for the dead air between songs. Why not use the medium to its advantage, eh?
Step 2: Cut the Record
For the next circle, start at one of the lines you crosses over and repeat the process. This is much easier to see in the picture.
Step 3: Don't Bend it Yet!
The record is in a fragile emotional and physical state and can easily fall apart. This Hair soundtrack was especially sensitive and split fantastically with the slightest bend. With a previous version I had made all my cuts on a Bruce Springsteen record only to see it break in two places with a slight curve. It made me sad.
