Do you remember Wintergatan Marble Machine which we had featured here couple of years back? For those who don’t know, it is an intricate music box which was handcrafted by Martin Molin, lead musician of a Swedish folktronica band called Wintergatan. This complex machine used around 2,000 tiny marble balls to play music. Well, for touring purpose, the band disassembled the original and recreated a new machine called the Marble Machine X. Now, to pay tribute to Martin Molin’s device, another artist from Sweden has come with a miniature version of the Wintergatan machine.
Love Hultén, a Sweden based visual artist and craftsman has created the Marble Machine XS. This device pays homage to Martin Molin and his ongoing music project Marble Machine X. The MMXS comes with the programming wheel design just like the original. However, unlike the original which is hand-cranked, the Love Hultén version uses battery power. The Marble Machine XS by Love Hultén uses a DC motor for mechanics combined with sounds generated by a synthesizer.
Measuring 50 X 20 X 20cm, the battery-powered MMXS features 16 notes and one can program about 128 bars of music. Besides that, it comes with 10 different sound presets as well. Also, it comes with speed control, volume and a built-in speaker. The Marble Machine XS from Love Hultén comes with a stylish finish which is inspired by vintage Meccano toy sets.
