Link to full video in bio! The Marble Machine took 16 months to build and 2 hours to take apart.
I took the boat to mainland to disassemble the first Marble Machine. The Machine is going to the fantastic @museumspeelklok Museum in Utrecht, Holland!
So this summer you can actually see the Machine if you visit Utrecht.
Sometime around the end May 2017 i will be at Spielklook Museum to re-assemble the machine. I will put up the exact dates once decided. I’m assembling the machine in one of their exhibition halls and the museum is open so come say hello and watch me struggle with this hacked together improvised machine. I can’t tell you enough times what a complete difference it is between the way MM1 and MMX is developed and built. Taking the first machine apart and seeing all the naive and improvised solutions makes me believe even more in the Marble Machine X because of the planned engineering approach we have now.
The museum wants to demonstrate the Marble Machine on their guided tours and i have promised to make the vibraphone able to play something. The bass and the drums won’t play anything as its way too much time involved to fix them, i don’t think i even could without rebuilding a lot.
Also the marble Lifting system will be disabled to make demonstrations work.
However, i am super happy that the machine can stay for a while in the very place that gave me the inspiration to build it. Speelklok is borrowing the machine so i will have it back in the future, time not set yet.
All the best! Martin #museumspeelklok #museumspeelklokutrecht #museum #utrecht #marblemachine @RepostIt_app
