This Incredibly Elaborate Machine Uses 2,000 Marbles To Make Music

Created by the Swedish band Wintergatan, this incredibly elaborate machine uses thousands of marbles to make music that's actually pretty awesome sounding. A winder on the side brings the marbles to the top and gathers them into separate lines that point to each individual instrument on the machine, and once he releases certain levers, the marbles will begin to incrementally fall and start playing that instrument. One instrument drops the marbles onto a xylophone, another drops the marbles onto the strings of a guitar while he plays it. Other levers on the machine include snare, kick, bass, etc...

The band is actually going to begin touring and playing live concerts with the machine at some point in 2016.

I'm just amazed that no marbles take a weird bounce and drop out of the machine...
