Marble Machine built and composed by Martin Molin
Video filmed and edited by Hannes Knutsson

Costume designed by Angelique Nagtegaal

See Sommarfågel music video by Wintergatan:

See Starmachine2000 music video by Wintergatan:

Swedish band Wintergatan will play live concerts starting from summer 2016.


Hannes Knutssons TRshow Channel:

Special thanks to Marcus Dimbodius who has been around throughout the whole build and suggested the cymbal placement and the use of the conveyer belt for the marble transportation. Dimbodius is an artist from Gothenburg:

Martin & Co.


If you want to SUPPORT US:
The fact that you are watching the videos and care about the music and future of Wintergatan is the best support anyone can have, I want to thank everyone who is here for that kind of support, it is really the fuel for the Wintergatan Engine.

If you apart from that further want to support the projects, we have these different options set up:


Why do we accept support in this way?
I, Martin, can already sustain myself 100% doing what I love to do. If you want to support artists/organisations who have not yet reached that privileged position, please consider supporting other artists/organisations who need the support more. With that said, I have too many ideas and too little time and with your support I can get more help from people around me to execute the ideas better and bring them out in the world faster.











Thanks to and for providing the CNC Machine and the 3D Printer for the Marble Machine X Project!

The last 30 seconds left me in chills when he just straight up left the machine running and the piece ended perfectly, amazing job.

You have to be a certified genius to make something like this. I mean the precision of the marbles and instruments has to be perfectly aligned. My mind is blown by this masterpiece

The thing is… this is a composite work, it took Martin a good… 60+ tries to get all the takes for this… however, he spent the next 6 years creating a better version of the mable machine and he got very far until transitioning to creating a tour ready Marble Machine Y, which is what he’s doing now

@1:06 with the marbles on the guitar? I know there are smarter people than me in the world but I never imagined by that X factor. Perfectly timed, mind blown.

I realize I'm six years late to the party, but I just got this in my recommended feed and I'm very impressed and pleasantly surprised. Not only does this song sound quite nice, but it's also super inventive, and a very well made machine. The hard work put into this paid off.

I come back regularly to this masterpiece. I wish Martin well in his next chapter that finds he has returned to Sweden to be with his father. Some might say this is where it all began - but Martin is a musical genius. A title not given lightly. Check out his other musical creations (Music Box & Modulin - "All Was Well" is hauntingly beautiful!). Definitely one the top musicians on TRshow worth keeping an eye on. The World Tour will be worth the wait....

Coming back here after the announcement of donating the Marble Machine X to a museum without it even having recorded any song of it's own. I feel like Martin has lost touch with his inner artist in pursuit of perfection. This machine right here is by no means perfect, yet it inspired millions. Something doesn't have to be perfect, for it to be beautiful. I hope he will come to realize that one day.

The thing that I always remember about this video is how Revving up the machine becomes percussion and the levers being pulled is audible with a wooden clacking sound, and it lends the song and almost industrial quality. The sound of machinery at work in an acoustically pleasing manner The explicitly musical instruments at play woven with the sound of the machine that brings them all together. The explicit and the implicit in one.

What you mean!?? I just so happen to be an engineer and a musician. The artistry behind musical sound is naturally pleasing because of the science and mechanics involved. The vocal chords of a singer can be described in mechanical terms. You have directionally pressurised air vibrations. You have constrictive isotonic muscle contractions. The singer changes the shape of their oral cavity. They exhale in a controlled manner. Etc., etc., etc. Engineering has been used to create instruments from the simplest of ancient lutes and lyres to the most complex and artisan-crafted grand pianos....and everything in between. All of creation is a grand testament to the beauty of design. When God spoke the universe into existence, He did so with absolute mechanical precision. Everything that we know, think, and do is artfully engineered by the greatest craftsman, so that whenever we attempt to do anything good or pleasing or thoughtful towards others, the mechanical science of God's invention fuels that attempt.
