See the Music Box build from start to finish!
Enjoy, all the best! / Martin
Off all my Tools, Instruments and Gear, the Magnetic Whiteboard is my absolute favourite. To get a visual representation of upcoming ideas and the ability to move them around, take stuff down and put stuff up without facing a computer screen feel so creativity friendly for me. Its like a third brainhalf. A third brainthird. #wintergatan #whiteboard #creativity #magnet #ideas
To build Marble Machine X we start by revisiting the first machine and taking some measurements.
This is a short version of our latest video, see the whole video on Youtube! There is also another new video explaining how the Modulin works, Share and Enjoy! // Martin
There Will be no video today on Wintergatan Wednesdays! Im too late since i had new ideas yesterday late, sorry for that but it Will be two videos tomorrow instead!! #wintergatan #thursdays
I came up with a much better design for the Marble Machine X Mute System and built a prototype to test it!

This new mute system is so much better than the first sketch and lightyears better than the system that the first marble machine used. I think this could be one of the key solutions to make Marble Machine X work...

In the previous video about the 90 degree kick drum i asked if you, the viewers, could help me solve it. And you did! I got 150 emails and 120 sketches in 48 hours. In this video i go through them and ultimately find a very elegant solution. Enjoy! Martin & Wintergatan

I had the idea that it would be cool to see what a drummer is playing with the right foot when you see a band live.
So i built The 90 Degree Kickdrum.
It failed, but im working on it and have recieved alot of sketches from Youtube Viewers.

Since so many of the viewers on our Youtube channel requested it: I made the end song available for free download here: [ Bandcamp.com Link ] Thanks for...

I made a handwriting wintergatan font. Looks stupid and good at the same time. Room for improvement! Took 10 minutes per try, fun though! #wintergatan #font #handwriting
Editing this weeks video where i go through the hundred sketches that were sent in with solutions to the 90 degree kick drum problem, i just realised that an alternation of Pedro Rocha's sketch might be a very very good solution. Did not see this until now. Thanks Pedro!!! #kickdrum #drums #wintergatan

My backups. Illustrates how hard disk space has increased as the space on the newer Green discs equals the space on all the older red discs combined. I'm archiving the old files and getting alot of headroom space for the new. Always like to start new processes like this, setting up a wide and blank harddrive canvas. #2017 #album #double #marblemachine #mmx
I'm on the night train to Kiruna, Northern Sweden and just had an idea to incorporate a kind of one-stringed Modulin on the Marble Machine X, positioned along the neck of the bass. @dimbodius Marcus Dimbodius once suggested something very similar for the first Marble Machine. A spinning wheel Will make the string vibrate (like a violin bow works) but only when pressure is engaged. Pitch is...
