Topographic Vinyl Records
'Flat Earth Society' Delivers the Sounds of the Earth on Vinyl

While many artists struggle to get more in touch with mother nature, Art of Failure’s specially created ‘Flat Earth Society’ vinyl is cleverly combining the Earth’s topographic representation with the power of a standard record player, in order to create a multimedia experience that puts us closer to hearing the sounds of nature.

By transferring the Earth’s elevation at the scale of a microgroove record, Art of Failure’s Flat Earth Society record seeks to audibly answer this collective’s curiosity about if and how we can hear the sounds of the Earth.

With the Flat Earth Society vinyl actually looking like a flashy, flattened image of our sphere, the sounds are formed when the record player’s needle dances on the raised, Earthly contours of this vinyl’s shiny surface.
