This video depicts the history of recorded music. It depicts that through the use of a Rube Goldberg Machine.
Are you excited? You should be. A well-executed Rube Goldberg Machine is awesome.
The premise behind the video, which was shot at London’s world-famous Abbey Road studios, is that the machine is built from the instruments used to produce, record and listen to music over time.
Cassette tapes! Yes!
It features snippets from various songs that you’ll recognize and a guy rapping over those songs that you probably won’t. Or at least that we don’t.
His name is Pepstar. We had to look that up.
