Music Box & Modulin – 2 new music instruments by Wintergatan

The designer, Martin Molin of Wintergatan (Milky Way in Swedish), built two new instruments and recorded a video where he uses both to perform an original composition titled All Was Well.

The first instrument is a handmade music box with a paper pulling mechanism that uses punched paper-tape to control individual notes.
The second is a “Modulin”:

” I have named this instrument “The Modulin” because i see it as a mix of a MODular syntheseiser and a vioLIN – MODULIN. We will film more videos to explain how it works. I am also building a version 2.0 of this Modulin for stability, it is very cobbled together at this stage and it has broken down on us on stage several times…”
