A music band that uses large Tesla coils as an integral part of their performances. Their website states (see About) the following: “Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coils, the crew of ArcAttack uses their high tech wizardry to generate a truly ‘electrifying’ performance. Two custom engineered hand built Tesla Coils throw out electrical arcs up to twelve feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizer…First and foremost, ArcAttack is all about putting on a show that is not just a concert, but an otherworldly experience…[W]e hope to inspire minds, the young and the old, to take up an interest in science, the arts, and their applications, to examine where they intersect, where they are going, and to re-examine the works of past researchers and performers such as Nikola Tesla and Delia Derbyshire in light of the ever evolving face of this amazing world…[A]nd maybe, just maybe, be inspired to help to leave the world a little better than the way they found it.”
