05 Oct The Marble Machine
Today I stumbled across this magnificent Marble Machine; making my day 17% better and restoring 3% of my faith in humanity.
The Marble Machine was built by Martin Molin — yep, it’s Martin Molin’s Marble Machine — and forms part of Swedish rock outfit Wintergatan‘s stage show.
Interesting fact: Google Translate tells me that the Swedish, ‘Wintergatan’ translates directly to the English, ‘Winter Street‘, leading me to the conclusion that I probably know more Swedish than I first thought. But I digress…
If you’re more than just a little engrossed by the Marble Machine, check in over at Wintergatan’s Youtube channel where you keep an eye on Martin’s progress as he builds Marble Machine X, and pays homage to many of his favourite mechanical musical instruments at Utrecht’s, Speelklok Museum.
