Ishac Bertran: Analog Vinyl Sampling

Music sampling has been done for years using different techniques. Currently samplers (either as a piece of hardware or as software) is the most extended tool for playing samples that can come from digital formatted music, live recording, vinyls or tapes. One of the most old techniques for sampling was cut&paste the audio tape.

Driven by my devotion for vinyls and analog processes (perhaps a bit of Dj wannabe too), and emulating the audio tape cut&paste technique, I tried to make the vinyl sampling a bit more analog – literally cut and paste pieces of vinyl to create samples.

Daisy Rock

I’ve been playing bass since I was 14, and at that age I wanted a Daisy Rock as soon as I heard about them. Creator Tish Ciravolo started the company to encourage more girls to learn to play musical instruments. She also found many female musicians had problems with bulky, heavy normal guitars. Daisy Rock guitars are lighter, have thinner necks for small hands and have a body shape that is more comfortable for women. Most of the guitar designs are feminine, but there are alternative designs and colour schemes.
