A unique machine designed solely to produce eerie sounds for horror films. Luthier Tony Duggan-Smith created this combination of strings, rods, magnets, wood, and other objects.

“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. 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.”
