Creating original artwork can be a very tricky ordeal, but musician and artist Ted Riederer was able to accomplish the task with his skull sculptures. Made using old vinyl records and melting them in the shape of a skull makes for distinct pieces that are quite stunning.

The art series is aptly entitled 'Primal Sound' and was heavily inspired by the essay written by Rainer Maria Rilke. Riederer states, "In this essay he ponders what sound the coronal suture would make as it closely resembles a sound wave. He proposes that this process of combining what seems like disparate elements initially to create something that the world has never heard, is a model for making good art." This inspired combination has created some remarkable skull sculptures that will surely motivate more artists to push the limits of using various elements to craft their work.
