Record Cutting

Behing the scenes footage of "Tiki for the Atomic Age" (2008) record being cut at History of Recorded Sound (HRS) in Culver City on a 1950 Scully Lathe that came from the Westrex Labratory. Cutting engineer Len Horowitz claims that the first stereo discs were cut on this lathe. Len was an understudy of Westrex' Otto Hep and is one of the few people on this planet that can rewire and rewind cutting heads. Excuse the poor quality  of the videos. They were recorded on a terrible mobile phone.
