Paper Record Player in a Wedding Invitation

(Vimeo Direktrecord, via cpluv)

Tolle Hochzeitseinladung von Kelli Anderson, die darin einen Plattenspieler aus Papier eingebaut hat, der den selbstgeschriebenen Song des Pärchens spielt.

In the booklet-style invitation, a bit of paper-folding amplifies the sound of a sewing needle moving along the grooves of a flexidisc record. The hand-spun record yields a garbled, but scrutable listening of an original song by the couple. It requires a bit of tinkering and folding —effectively championing the inner science-nerd kid in the recipient. The whole thing serves as an interactive packaging for the song—which can be experienced on the paper record player, unscrewed + set on a regular turntable, or enjoyed online (for the non-nerds and/or audiophiles out there.)
