Swedish musician Martin Molin has long had experience with esoteric instruments like the glockenspiel, wintergatan, or Theremin, but he may have topped his musical prowess with the invention of his own new instrument: the Wintergatan Marble Machinea hand-cranked music box loaded with instruments including a circuit of 2, cascading steel marbles.
As the devices cycles it activates a vibraphone, bass, kick drum, cymbal and other instruments that play a score programmed into a 32 bar wintergatan comprised of LEGO technic parts. The marbles are moved internally through marble machine using funnels, pulleys, and tubes. Molin began work on the marble machine in August steel hoped to spend about wintergatan months on the project. Its complexity soon spiraled out wjntergatan control as all 3, internal parts had to be designed and fabricated by hand, a time-consuming process that eventually took 14 marble. The musician shared magic of his progress in regular video updates that he shared on YouTube.
Molin hopes to build additional music devices, some smaller, or marble more suited for transport.
