Default Engineered Music

This incredible machine was built as a collaborative effort between The Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa.

Amazingly, 97% of the machine's components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation Equipment of Bancroft , Iowa , yes farm equipment!

It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as you can see it was well worth the effort.

It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian Institution.



This is almost unbelievable .. See how all of the balls wind up in catcher cones.

Wait, this is real? I saw this a few months ago but it was lumped in with those animusic drumming robots(very cool also) and I just figured it was all cg. Man, whoever devised this contraption are geniuses...alot time on their hands but cool as hell!

Ok, i watched this on a higher res. screen and now I feel like an idiot. Oh well...

Hehe you can't be serious. That's so obviously computer generated.

I wish someone had actually made that for real. Perhaps I've found my calling in life.

It its pretty cool how the programmers actually do it though:

I wonder where I can pick up one of those circular vibraphones.
