Wintergatan Marble Machine-Released Samuel WestergrenSeveral instruments in one machine played by one man using 2000 marbles? It certainly makes for one beautiful song.

Martin Molin of the Swedish band Wintergatan just published a debut video of his completed ‘Magical Marble Machine’ following a tedious 14-month building process staged in a windowless Gothenberg building.

The machine, containing bells, bass, and percussion, is powered by a crank lever on the side. Cranking the contraption sends marbles up to the top of the machine which then drops them onto the various instruments.

The results are magical.

Since its premier on Leap Day, the music video has generated millions of views and Mr. Molin promises an audio-only track to come and summer concerts on the horizon.
