Video: Horror Musical Instrument - The Apprehension Engine

A friend pointed me to this interesting video about a machine built by Tony Duggan-Smith for the Indy Film & Music youtube channel, to make horror movie sounds. It's incredible the variety of sounds the machine can make.

Thanks for mentioning our instrument! It is certainly getting used by some awesome Game developers right now and obviously in film and TV shows. The beauty is that people can explore these ideas even with objects found around the house and the fact that every sound has to be 'earned' through playing vs assembling sound files on your lap top, amps up the fun factor for the composer/players exploring this avenue. Have fun! Whether with one of our instruments or something you make yourself. There is lots to discover and many of these sounds have been around for hundreds, even thousands of years.
