The series SCRATCHED IN BEAT shows the results of scratched and simultaneously scanned album covers.
For the experimental setup a DIN-A3 sized flat bed scanner is installed above a record player. During the experiment miniatures of the album covers  are placed on the turntable instead of the record itself. The hit single of the record is played with a mp3-player and the album cover is scratched in the beat. Meanwhile the movements of the album cover is scanned with the overlying scanner. In the resulting scans the beat of the music melts into the  in beat of the sound is taking place in the scanning results.

(Schallplattencover , Plattenspieler, Flachbettscanner, Schallplatte, mp3-Player, Kopfhörer, Computer)

Die Serie SCRATCHED IN BEAT zeigt die Ergebnisse von gescratchten und gleichzeitig eingescannten Schallplattencovern.
Für den Versuchsaufbau wurde ein DIN-A3 großer Flachbettscanner über einem Plattenspieler installiert. Während des Versuches wurde anstatt der Schallplatte deren verkleinertes Schallplattencover auf dem Plattenteller montiert. Der Hit des jeweiligen Albums wurde mit einem mp3-Player abgespielt und das Schallplattencover im Takt dazu gescratcht. Währenddessen wurden mit dem darüberliegenden Scanner die Bewegungen des Schallplattencovers eingescannt. Im daraus resultierenden Scan, verschmilzt somit der Takt der Musik mit dem ursprünglichen Schallplattencover.
