A Playable 6-Sided Record Record

Musician Dimitri Manos offers this unique object: a record with six playable . . . well, sides isn’t quite the right word.

Each side of the two-sided record has three overlapping circles, each of which has its own track. You can play by placing the record on the turntable with the right hole among the five in the center.

In this video, Mike Dixon gives a demonstration of how it works. Manos’s band American Monoxide composed a piece specifically to make use of the record’s unique properties. Because the record makes a chirping sound when the needle crosses two overlapping tracks, the composition incorporates that sound.
