More Tesla Coil Music

Excerpt from Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in Dm

I’ve been getting some criticism lately for calling things stupidtacular.

Some things, like programming Chuck E Cheese robots to sing Miss New Booty, or a $1,000 iPod dock, are just awesomely stupid.

Tesla coil music may fall into the same category.

Joe DiPrima and Oliver Greaves of ArcAttack use “a unique DJ set up of their own creation (an HVDJ set up) to generate an ‘electrifying’ audio visual performance. The HVDJ pumps music through a PA System while two specially designed DRSSTC’s (Dual-Resonant Solid State Tesla Coils) act as separate synchronized instruments.”

These high tech machines produce an electrical arc similar to a continuous lightning bolt which puts out a crisply distorted square wave sound reminiscent of the early days of synthesizers.
