Musical Marble Machine by Wintergatan

Written by

So, this might be a little too nerdy or geeky or both for some people... but, the sheer level of epicness of this musical marble machine created by Martin Molin AKA Wintergatan is phenomenal. With over 3000 parts, using 2000 marbles and having taken over 14 months to design and build, this is one of those gems you find (every once in a blue moon) which ticks so many 'right' boxes. I love music, design, innovation, Lego, crafting, woodwork, mechanics and engineering. So, you will understand why this contraction has me so mesmerized.

In this post I have included the original music video by Wintergatan created from the launch of the musical marble machine along with the two part series of how it works. I have also included a videos which I think offered a little inspiration for this delightful contraption.

Let me know in the comments below what you think of this incredibly creative and innovative approach to creating music in a world where so much music is created digitally and requires very little skill and music knowledge.
