The Apprehension Engine is a one-of-a-kind electro-acoustic instrument, commissioned by film composer Mark Korven, for creating horror music.
Korven wanted a better way of getting unique sounds for his soundtracks, so he worked with luthier Tony Duggan-Smith to create what is described as ‘the spookiest instrument on Earth.”
The above video offers an introduction to The Apprehension Engine, while the video below offers a demonstration of the instrument’s sonic possibilities.
