Too Weird – “Midsomer Murders” Iconic Theme Song features the eerie, magical, mysterious Theremin -- an unusual electronic instrument played WITHOUT EVER touching the instrument! In the video below, Jim Parker, the Composer for this popular British Detective TV series playing since 1997 on ITV, with a consistent viewership of 6 million, discusses the show with a theremin demonstration by Celia Sheen.

A large part of “Midsomer Murders'” success is the down-to-earth, happily married, DCI John Barnaby (Neil Dudgeon), and his various sidekick Sergeants. Depicted in the video below are the earlier actors, DCI Barnaby as portrayed by John Nettles, and Daniel Casey playing Sergeant Troy.

In addition to adding creepiness to murder mysteries, the theremin thrives in popularity for spooky scenes, horror flicks, and Halloween ambience. A wonderful theremin cue online at AudioSparx was created by our great award-winning US Composer Dewey Dellay:

"It's like tickling butterflies," said Charlie Hobbs, an instructor who also builds and sells custom theremins.” – that was a quote from The Wall Street Journal article of March 26. And from the same article, “"It's going to sound like nothing you've ever heard, for sure," said Rob Schwimmer, one of the NY Theremin Society's directors. "If uniqueness is something that appeals, you've got it made."

Check out the cool demonstration of the spooky and amazing theremin:
