Dark Shadows Theme (1966) On The Theremin

Thereminist Carolina Eyck shared this spooky live performance of the theme from Dark Shadows, by Robert Cobert.

Dark Shadows was a sort of vampire soap opera that aired from 1966-1971. Story lines featured vampires, witches and zombies, and spanned several centuries and multiple timelines

Cobert’s score built on the musical tropes of horror cinema, especially the dramatic opening theme, scored for theremin and orchestra.
