Tesla meets Symphony meets Star Wars

For the first time ever, the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra conducted by Torodd Wigum has staged a piece with two Tesla coils functioning as an instrument: “Star Wars. Main Title” by John Williams. The six concerts were presented by Andreas Wahl/en, with the question of how music is created at the centre of the production.

For the event, we set up an installation of a 2MTC and a 1MTC coil, controlled via keyboard.
One of the most tense and exciting moments of the performance was the interplay of Andreas Wahlen’s chain-mail shirt and the lightning flashes emitted.
