Joe DiPrima and Oliver Greaves of ArcAttack have created an amazing pair of Singing Tesla Coils that are used in conjunction with their DJ setup. Sean Savage shot a great video of them performing the 1970’s electronic hit “Popcorn” at Flipside 2008.
ArcAttack employs 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 put out a crisply distorted square wave sound reminiscent of the early days of synthesizers. The music consists of original highly dance-able electronic compositions that sometimes incorporates themes or dub of popular songs.
Here are the Singing Tesla Coils performing “Creepy Circus Song”.
