Hitchcock and the trautonium

The trautonium is a monophonic electronic musical instrument invented in around 1929 by Friedrich Trautwein in Berlin at the Musikhochschule's music and radio lab, the Rundfunkversuchstelle. Soon Oskar Sala joined him, continuing development until Sala's death in 2002.

Oskar Sala composed music for industrial films, but the most famous was the bird noises for Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds.
