P1020549 The Arc Attack Tesla coils are sitting still between performances
The creators' description of this performance / exhibit says:
"Arc Attack employs a unique DJ set up of their own creation 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 and put out a crisply distorted square wave sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizers.
Arc Attack is an Austin born, high tech performance group. They've been working together since 2005. The group members are Joe DiPrima, Oliver Greaves, Tony Smith, John DiPrima, Patrick Brown and Craig Newswanger."
My video of two fencing Tesla coils can be found here on YouTube
My video of Tesla coil discharges hitting an electrical guitar hanging from the ceiling can be found here on YouTube. This performance could have been even cooler if the discharges were playing the guitar in this manner. Well, actually, the exhibit's description says the electrical arcs produce music, but I doubt the music playing in the background of the video was produced by them. :-)
