“Marble Machine” is a viral video featuring a musical instrument made by Martin Molin over the course of a year. Each wooden piece of the machine was/is? handcrafted. This video has nearly doubled its views since January 2017. The views at the time of writing are approximately sixty million views.
He did have some technical difficulties. He had made the machine bigger than the width of his door frame. Likewise, he had so many other mechanical problems occurring with the machine. Therefore, there was always something wrong happening when he played it.
In spite of all this, he and his band continue to pursue greater objectives for the future. Currently, Martin hosts a video series called “Wintergatan Wednesdays” to promote his upcoming machine, the ‘Marble Machine X’.
Not only does he post videos on Wednesday but also on Mondays. These videos on Monday’s feature a mechanism from the Speelklok Museum, the museum that inspired his ‘Marble Machine’ that is displayed in the viral video. The museum videos show the machine working along with some background history about the machine.
I hope that in the future they become more popular and they succeed in their ambition to make their world tour a reality. These people deserve more subscribers so please subscribe to their channel: Wintergatan. They are awesome.
