Musical Instrument Which Is Remarkably Complex, Which Operates on 2,000 Marbles

If you believed it was difficult to play the guitar, you should meet 33 year old Martin Molin. He is Wintergatan’s lead musician from Sweden who has created a new instrument whose complexity is out of this world!

He refers to it as Wintergatan’s Marble Machine. This extraordinary musical instrument is totally analog. It obtains power from a hand crank which is operated manually. The sound stems from 2,000 metal marbles which pass via the instrument.

Sadly, the machine which took a couple of years to create will be disassembled soon. But, the artist vows he will form a small edition of the Marble Machine for live events.
