For writing film scores, Raymond Scott has developed an instrument which he calls the ''VIDEOLA.'' The mechanism operates a movie film in a projection room in another part of the house by remote control.

- - The movie is flashed on a television screen, so that Scott can watch the film as he composes appropriate music. A recording apparatus is hooked up to the VIDEOLA, as well, so that he can stop, play back, listen, rub out, and rewrite.
