He Put Some Rocks In A Machine To Create Something So Amazing — Wow!

Musicians jamming out on electric guitars and drum sets usually come to mind when we think about rock bands, but this guy had a much different idea when he started working on his own.

Artist Neil Mendoza has built a seriously unique machine that creates beautiful music akin to the kind that music boxes produce — but the melodies it plays are way cooler because they’re made by rocks!

Self-described re-imaginer Hazal Yalım is very interested in what they call reuniting the past and present. After watching a scene from the movie “Night at the Museum,” in which a previously lifeless figure of a neanderthal comes to life and starts listening to music on an iPod, they were inspired to create strange yet hilarious scenes juxtaposing classical art with gifs of pop culture icons we know and love today.
