Marble Machine

What a wonderful machine. Incredible how Swedish musician Martin Molin made a handmade music box that powers a kick drum, bass, and vibraphone using a hand crank and 2,000 marbles. This composition is so musical and made with love and care.

Martin Molin said this about his project:
‘The marbles, you know, they behave like water. The nature of water is that it just breaks through everything. After 100,000 years it can make a hole in stone. The marbles act like that.’
