day 271: analog obsessions
Recently I’ve been getting quite a bit into vinyl records. This is actually relatively strange, since it happened because the main character of my novel is really into records and this got me researching quite a bit. So, basically my novel ended up influencing me and not only the other way round.
I really like how records make me focus more on listening, since you end up having to clean them, turn them over, handle them carefully, which makes listening to music into more of a ritual. Just clicking on an mp3 file just isn’t the same and I’m really starting to appreciate that.
Maybe I should get into analog photography as well and see how that changes the way I perceive taking pictures.
