THE NIGHTMARE MACHINE!
It is basically a custom musical instrument to make sound effects and creepy sounds for films.
The origin of these sounds we hear daily in films, shows, and video games, often without noticing, was created by Wilhelm "Richard Wagner".
Famous German composer and playwright, sponsored by King Ludwig II of Bavaria.
He created the best performances of the ancient German Legends of Heroes, mostly based on the Nibelungenlied.
Stories of Siegfried, Brünnhilde, Günther, Atilla the Hun (Etzel), and many other famous ancient Legends.
And...he was the original neckbeard!
Wagner was the first to use music as a sound effect to evoke emotion and create "theme music" for characters.
This is called "LEITMOTIV".
His critics called it "ear-bleeding" music. They had no idea what a cultural element it would become.
These sounds were originally made with Classical instruments.
Later they were synthesized.
And in search of a more natural, organic, and unique sound, the Nightmare Machine was born!
