Twin solid-state singing coils

This weekend we had a great shop day working on a lot of different projects. One of those was finally putting together our solid-state coils and hooking them up to a Midi source (in this case an old keyboard with a Midi out).

The keyboard itself isn’t making any sound, all the audio is generated by the sparking electricity.

Here’s a little later in the day with a bit more musicality:

Modern Marvels: Weird Machines

Here’s a link to the full episode of Modern Marvels which features Omega Recoil and a lot of our friends: Modern Marvels: Weird Machines. At 28:50 you’ll see Jon Sarriugarte and our electrical performances start at 32:50.

(Sometimes the link is active, sometimes it is down because the episode will be airing soon.)
