Machine Makes Music Out of 2000 Marbles!
A monumental piece of ingenuity by Swedish group Wintergatan, created and built by Martin Molin, has manifested itself into a beautiful instrument called the Marble Machine. In a dazzling display of woodwork and musicianship, the Marble Machine, powered by a spinning wheel and 2,000 marbles, triggers a snare, kick, bass and a vibraphone to create a hypnotic arrangement of music.
Take a look at the video below, you can only realize the significance by placing eyes on the extremely complex machine, composed of a multitude of components from funnels and pulleys, to marbles and cranks. Take a look!
