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 ?
