On this addition of Unusual Sounds, we will be joined by award-winning film composer and multi-instrumentalist Mark Korven. Mark has been composing for TV and film for over 20 years and is most recently known for his invention and work with a unique instrument called The Apprehension Engine. The Apprehension Engine was specially designed to create unnerving sounds for horror movie soundtracks and was featured in Mark's haunting and acclaimed scores for Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse & The VVitch.
Join us May 28th to learn about the inspiration and making of the Apprehension Engine and a very special, intimate performance live from Mark's home studio.
