NEW DISC FORMAT COMBINING CD & VINYL?

Updated: Jun 6, 2022

Legendary US producer and guitarist T Bone Burnett is developing a new, ultra-high-fidelity medium for physical music distribution.

Using both lacquer and aluminium, the disc format, dubbed Ionic Original, combines technology from both CD and vinyl manufacturing.


"An Ionic Original is the pinnacle of recorded sound," Burnett said in a statement. "It is archival quality. It is future proof. It is one of one. Not only is an Ionic Original the equivalent of a painting, it is a painting. It is lacquer painted onto an aluminium disc, with a spiral etched into it by music. This painting, however, has the additional quality of containing that music, which can be heard by putting a stylus into the spiral and spinning it."

Burnett, once a bandmate of Bob Dylan's, said he's re-recorded some of Dylan's music onto the new medium, though there is no release date specified.
