Have you ever wanted to own your own record? UK artist Jason Leach takes the idea a step further with his company Andvinyly, where they will press the cremated ashes of you or a loved one into a vinyl record.

“Personally, I would love to own a record of my great great grandfather for example on which I can listen to his voice, hear what he liked and the music and places that meant a lot to him. To hear the actual sound of someone’s voice exactly as they sounded, vibrating the air in my room, speaking of things that meant a lot to them all that time ago is profound and exciting to me. I love the idea of my future generations being able to fill their room with my voice in 200 years time by running a needle through the spiral groove of a record which I made for them from me.” – Jason Leach
