What makes that spooky, eerie sound in the background of horror and science fiction movies? Most likely, it is an instrument called a Theremin. The Theremin is played without even touching it! Its strange sound is caused by radio waves. It has a straight vertical rod that controls the pitch and a horizontal loop that controls volume. The pitch and volume are controlled by moving the hands closer to or farther from the antennas. Come listen to music on this strange instrument played by professional musician, Christopher Payne.
