Give It up ‘One More Time’ for These Musical Tesla Coils

Tesla coils love to make music. We’ve heard them play all kinds of songs, from Daft Punk’s “Around the World” to Toto’s “Africa.” But now they’re back…one more time. In a video we first spotted on  Laughing Squid, a musical quartet of Tesla coils performs Daft Punk’s “One More Time.” And boy, do sparks fly.

When things behave in ways we don’t expect them to, the results are always a lot of fun. Especially if the results please the ear and eye. But these musical Tesla coils take it to the next level. They put on an incredible show. It’s something right out of our best nostalgic dreams. These Tesla coils know how to rock and roll. Their special effects are out of this world. Though the music they make wows, we can’t deny the show of purple lightning isn’t what makes this extra special.

The coils use their buzzing tones to make the song come to life. This harmonious marvel is made possible by Franzoli Electronics. The channel shares:

The video’s description further explains how these musical Tesla coils operate:

For those who did not understand what is going on this video, here’s a brief explanation: The main loud music really comes from the tesla coil sparks. They are literally playing the music due to the programmed phase, pulse width and firing frequency! So, there are no speakers, no audio / video special effects. It looks even better in person and sounds almost the same, just louder than people expect!

The fact that Franzoli Electronics uses no speakers and no added special effects astounds. The video is up there with cool sequences from the best movies, but you could actually experience this performance in real life. Are these coils going on tour soon? We hope so.
