I have to share this with the group. Hope this lets you get your geek on!
Beware that the entire track has a lot of bass, so consider turning your computer speaker volume down.

3 Tesla Coils, Robotic Drums and Bass
from K X 1 week ago All Audiences
This is an experimental drum 'n bass piece written for 3 Tesla coils, a robotic drum kit and robotic bass guitar.
The leads are performed by a Plasmasonic Dual Resonance Solid State Tesla Coil (DRSSTC), and the accompanying parts by 2 microBrute DRSSTCs.
The Tesla coils are controlled by the Chime Red musical Tesla coil control system created by Josh Bailey and James McVay.
The bass part is played by the Mechbass robotic bass guitar which was created by James McVay and Jim Murphy.
All sounds were recorded directly from the instruments with microphones in the space shown, with no added tracks.
Big thanks to the above-mentioned people for all of their hard work, and to Victoria University of Wellington for facilitating the creation of this work.
