We are developing AUDIOLAC, a lacquer for recording sound. Using a record cutting lathe, sound grooves are cut into its dried surface. We want to keep this fascinating analog way for recording sound alive. This vision has made us experiment for years. After developing and testing own lacquer recipes we started to manufacture lacquer disc prototypes by curtain coating. After drying and cutting, we enjoy the sound of playback. First prototypes have also been successfully electroplated, as starting point for pressing vinyl records. We are currently refining our lacquer formula, as well as coating and drying processes. We experience work on the lacquer recipe, disc coating, drying, electroplating and sound cutting as interwoven worlds.
