George Carlin on Death

June 23rd, 2008


RIP George. You shaped the way I think. Sure you were hilarious and socially conscious. But you keenly understood the primal power hidden within words.

I hope that you got your two-minute warning.

Arc Attack: Musical Tesla Coils

June 11th, 2008

Meet the Arc Attack musical tesla mojo. It was my favorite innovation at Flipside 2008. More will spring from this.

It’s a giant sculpture controlled by DJs/musicians who use the electric bolts generated by two big tesla coils as instruments.

“…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 puts out a crisply distorted square wave sound reminiscent of the early days of synthesizers.”
