I stumbled upon a fantastic rabbit hole last night on YouTube. Some of you may be familiar with wintergatan’s channel, where he has been showing the construction of “Marble Machine X”, a machine that plays music by dropping marbles on musical instruments in a programmed way (sort of like a player piano). Absolutely fascinating how he has constructed this complicated machine from scratch over the years! But this particular video may be of interest to people like us: How to maintain focus.
Can his technique help us?
PS: also check out his test run of MMX playing a tune:
