This video, via KinetiX, captures ‘an experimental drum ‘n bass piece’, for 3 Tesla coils, a robotic drum kit and robotic bass guitar.
The leads are performed by a Plasmasonic Dual Resonance Solid State Tesla Coil (DRSSTC), and the accompanying parts by 2 microBrute DRSSTCs. \
The Tesla coils are controlled by the Chime Red musical Tesla coil control system created by Josh Bailey and James McVay. The Chime Red musical Tesla coil controller treats each Tesla coil as a 16-note polyphonic pulse-wave synthesizer, complete with velocity sensitivity, ADSR envelopes, LFOs, pitch and amplitude modulation, etc.
The bass part is played by the Mechbass robotic bass guitar which was created by James McVay and Jim Murphy.
All sounds were recorded directly from the instruments with microphones in the space shown, with no added tracks.
KinetiX has several EPs and singles out, which are available via Beatport, Juno and other online retailers.
