2017 Halloween Theremin Contest

Watch as theremin-master Hannibal Buress gives a rundown of this year's contest

It’s that time of year again. The time when the unearthly sounds of the theremin float up from the ether to announce the thinning of the veil between worlds. It’s also the time of year for the Moog Halloween Theremin Contest. In celebration of the holiday, we want you to produce your best Halloween-themed Theremin video. Entries will be judged on originality, creativity, and overall-spookiness.

To Enter:

1. Grab your Theremin.

2. Create a video of you playing it that embodies the spirit of the season.

3. Upload the video to Youtube using the title “Moog Halloween Theremin Video Contest 2017”. All videos must be uploaded by MIDNIGHT EST on Thursday, October 26th.

4. Send an email with the subject “Moog Halloween Theremin Video Contest 2017” to [email protected] with the YouTube link to your entry.

On October 31st, Moog will announce three winners on the basis of originality, creativity, and best embodiment of Halloween. First place will receive a Mother-32 Analog Synthesizer, second place a MF-103 12 Stage Phaser and third place a MF-102 Ring Modulator.
