Extraordinaire Instrument de Musique


All of the balls end up in the receiving cones.  This incredible machine was built thanks to the collaborative effort between the Music Conservatory de Requena & the Engineering School of the Universidad de Cheste (Valencia). Incredibly, 97% of the components of the machine come from farm equipment.   The whole piece was achieved with 5.029 hours of building, aligning, calibration & decoration before they were able to film this video; although as you can see the effort was well worth it.  Today it is functioning in the Museo del Vino de Requena.
