Waaahhh! Bwaaaaa! Bwaaaang! Wooooo.
One of my favorite parts of the 1950's classic science fiction film, Forbidden Planet, is the eerie "music" throughout the film. To my surprise, the tones were not created using a Theremin but something that sounds remarkably similar and adds a creepy, science fictiony undertone to everything that happens.
If you'd like to try your hand at recreating some of these sounds, or create all new ones, Luke Philips has created an on-line, customizable Theremin. It's great.
