Musical Marble Machine

Video of the Month

What do you get when you cross two thousand marbles, clever engineering and a musician? An incredible music machine of course!

The epic machine took fourteen months to be hand made by musician Martin Molin, who also composed the music it plays.

The machine is hand operated with a lever, which triggers the marbles, which then in turn creates the sound. Innovation meets inspiration meets art meets science to create a thing of beauty and wonder.
