Freaking amazing!!! It's like he has made a mechanical version of music software, apparently its programmable just by moving some levers around. If you go to his channel it shows the process of making it as well.

This was indeed pretty amazing. I'm curious though how much mastering was done afterward. Seems a bit too perfect.

As someone who has dabbled in electronic music where multiple instrument is being controlled by a computer this is simple amazing. The fact that this is multi- instrument is astounding. This is art and will inspire a lot of people.
Thanks for sharing this and for everyone here put your mind to something and start making something today big or small.

There was set of computer animations called Animusic. These were completely computer generated. It's amazing to see these kind of systems implemented in the real world. Intel tried copying "Pipe Dream".
