Legend of Zelda theme on Tesla coils

SexyBack vs. Legend of Zelda Theme on Two Tesla Coils from Trammell on Vimeo. From Arc Attack:
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

    Neat concept for a live electronic performance, but shitty “mash-up.”

    Haven’t we already seen this? Oh, wait, that was some other theme, wasn’t it… (And I think that sums up my reaction: It’s a cute trick, but mostly a “funny-once”.)

    Aw, c’mon, technogeek it wasn’t THAT bad.

    Tesla coils are a win and it’s a rainy day on the east coast.

    I thought it a good momentary diversion.

    What the!?



    Crap that’s freakin’ awesome. I was unaware that Tesla coils could do such a thing… though I suppose it only makes sense.

    Though I do agree they REALLY could have picked a better song for this. The Zelda theme parts were perfect, but… why sully the awesome with that other crap.

    Next I think they need to do the theme from Metroid for Gameboy. Perhaps the best piece of beep music I have ever heard.

    I still think the better name for one of these would be a Zeusaphone.
