Zippity Zap!: Dr. Who Theme On Tesla Coils

May 27, 2010


Note: Video is after the jump due to its electrifying nature. You know, or to keep scripts on the front page to a minimum.

This is a rendition of the Dr. Who theme as performed on Tesla coils at the recent Makers Faire in San Mateo, CA. I'd make love to it -- aaaand a Victoria's Secret catalog. Psyche -- THIS AIN'T MIDDLE SCHOOL.

ArcAttack 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 synthesizers

Well what'd you think? I dug it. Of course, I also dug up my dead hamster after a year to see what it looked like. It didn't look good. Really wish I hadn't done that.

Hit it for the shocking (God I slay me) performance.
