Friday Madness: ArcAttack
ArcAttack, tesla coil musicians who we’ve showcased previously here at FutureMusic, have taken their performance to the masses via America’s Got Talent. The group, who construct all their own gear from scratch in one of the member’s garage, utilize two huge Tesla Coils, which act like speakers, to perform recognizable songs. For America’s Got Talent, they performed Iron Man, a nod to judge Sharon Osbourne’s famous husband, Ozzy.
The performance is sequenced via MIDI by an Open Labs Miko, which the members found beneficial due to it’s all-metal chassis.
However, they are now employing a special MIDI guitar into the performance, using new technology that they needed to develop for their unique application.
The group hopes to take their show to Vegas and follow in the Blue Man Group’s footsteps for International domination. Instead, we’d like to see ArcAttack move into a more Crash Worship-like direction — total mayhem!
