This instrument is a "horror cinematic noise generator"

On his Etsy shop, AzzamBells sells the MPA 019, a fully analog "horror cinematic noise generator." It has metal rods, a prong that emits an eerie tone when stroked with a violin bow, and something that looks like a cymbal cut into a weird shape. At $350, this seems like a bargain. Here's a YouTube video of the device being played.
