Dubplates auf Knochenbildern

Die Welt war definitiv schon mal futuristischer. Scheinbar gabs in den Nachkriegszeiten in Russland, Ungarn etc. eine richtig florierende Szene für Dubplates auf solchen Röntgenplatten. Die Szene nannte sich wohl – auch funky – Roentgenizdat und es soll später auch Beatles-Platten auf Röntgenplatten gegeben haben.

During the late 1930s and early 1940s the prevalent sound recording apparatus was the wax disk cutter. As a consequence of the lack of materials in the war-time economy, some inventive sound hunters made their own experiments with new materials within their reach.
I do not know the name of the inventor who first utilized discarded medical X-ray film as the base material for new record discs; however, the method became so widespread in Hungary that not only amateurs, but the Hungarian Radio made sound recordings on such recycled X-ray films.
I felt that those X-ray record albums relate to our contemporary lives in many ways, especially when considering such terms as ‘multimedia’ or ‘recy- cling’. I copied the X-ray films with their engraved sound-grooves on photosensitive paper and made enlargements of certain details.

    kommt von diesen platten vielleicht der begriff, dass einem ein bestimmter sound “durch mark und bein” geht ?
