      This Machine Run By Marbles And A Crank Makes Beautiful Music

      This Machine Run By Marbles And A Crank Makes Beautiful Music
      They’re really taking the concept of a music box to the next level.

      The artist and composer, Wintergatan, has built the incredible Wintergatan Music Machine, which is run by a crank and marbles. No electricity needed!



      The music that’s created from this is beautiful, and so are the details of this intricate machine. A simple crank gets everything going.

      Everything is in its right place as the machine and the song composition are basically the same thing.

      Even the name, Wintergatan Marble Machine, is a functioning part of the song!

      How many marbles does thing use?!? If there was one less or one more would the song sound different?

      Amazing work!!! Now here’s where you drop the mic! Or smash your instrument like a rockstar? Or taking off your headphones and contentedly walking off stage is fine too, I suppose.

      Here’s a link for more about Wintergatan and for more of his music.
      Note: The original article has a lot of gif images that haven't cross posted taken from the video. You may wish to look at them using the link at the top of this post.

      I don't know if anyone else has been following this, but a lot has happened since my original post back in 2016.

      Essentially he's done some research regarding music machines and begun building a new marble machine. It's kind of been a big job. Recently he's clock the magic 100th video!

      Martin has been learning a great deal, making many mistakes but also fixing them. I'm waiting for him to open a new channel called "Martin loses his mind" but that would give away some of the stresses he's gone through. He recently took a short summer break and it was needed. He's back into his stride and making good progress.

      The build of the new machine starts here...



      Typically a new video is posted every Wednesday. The latest one is here:
