Wintergatan Marble Machine Instrument Uses 2000 marbles

This amazing mechnical musical instrument by a Swedish musician uses 2,000 "steelie" marbles which, technically, are ball bearings, but most Americans who grew up playing marbles would classify them as marbles.

I wonder whether this device was inspired by the Pipe Dream computer generated animation from ~8 years ago?
