Horror Musical Instrument – The Apprehension Engine
*NEW* Check out new Apprehension Engine Performance video
I made a sketch of an idea I had for an instrument that specialized in creating horrifying sounds, and I got my good friend Tony Duggan-Smith to build it for me, with the intention of using it in horror film score.
Credit where credit is due: the ideas was influenced by a Vimeo video called, “Koka’s Soundtrack Box #1”.
It consists of metal rulers which are bowed, a hurdy gurdy like mechanism, a string played with an attached Ebow, a spring reverb (also played with an ebow) some long metal rods, magnets, trash, anything at all to get unnerving sounds.
