The Dr Who Theme, Played On Tesla Coils

Half A Million Volts, MIDI Controlled      22/05/11

The Dr Who theme is almost 50 years old - and yet it seems to have as many lives as the Doctor himself. 

Here, Austin, TX based Arc Attack performs the famous Ron Grainer theme (via Delia Derbyshire) on half a million volts of MIDI-controlled Tesla Coil lightning. 

The video is from Arc Attack's performance at the 2011 San Mateo Maker Faire. 

When Arc Attack isn't doing covers of sci fi theme songs, they stay busy by doing electrocuting high school science teachers and otherwise educating students about the awesomeness of science.
