Sometimes we think of musical instruments like natural objects. It’s hard to imagine, sometimes, that someone invented the guitar or the violin, any more than someone invented a tree or a lake. But someone did invent and someone else did innovate each and every musical instrument under the sun. And they’re still doing it. Here’s more from SonicState:
If you’ve heard of WinterGatan, you will have seen his tremendous marble music machines – well, this is the man who originally inspired him many years ago! The Jan Cardell Mechanichal Orchestra is an incredible selection of hand made machines with a steampunk aesthetic and exceptionally well-designed forms. Of course they don’t just look great, they also sound fantastic, with some glorious tones across the board (sometimes literally). Not sure you’ll find a gig bag for all of them! Amazing stuff.
It would be wrong of me to not also mention Felix Machines here, who also makes incredible musical…. machines!
