Leesta Vall Direct-To-Vinyl Office Sessions are live musical performances that take place in our office in Brooklyn. Each unique performance is cut live in realtime directly to a 7” lathe cut vinyl record, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind musical artifact. Each individual vinyl record contains it’s own version of a song that only it’s purchaser will have/hear….a very special thing.
Our record cutting lathe is a 1950’s era “suitcase” cutter that has been modified to cut mono grooves into specialized plastics. The cutter has been dropped into a rack containing other vintage/analog outboard recording equipment. No computers are necessary for these Direct-To-Vinyl cutting sessions.
For these sessions, no preservation of the recordings take place beyond cutting grooves into a record while the artist performs. The result is a lathe cut record containing a unique performance that exists nowhere else in the world. No duplication and no digital versions mean these records are each 100% one-of-a-kind.
