O___O When you said Tesla Coils playing music I was like... wtf? It didn't make too much sense, and it still doesn't. I know the lightning makes the air around it vibrate, but how do they get it to vibrate at certain wavelengths to produce different notes? Those ArcAttack guys seem insanely awesome.

Singing Arc? I definitely don't understand this one. Really don't understand how they're making sound, but yes, the audio modulated VTTC sounds cool.

I'm sure any fan recognizes this song played by two floppy disk drives.

I think the Deep Forest/David Lanz song fit here when requested, as I did tounge2 They are technically fully instrumental songs. So dunno. But yeah, totally love all this stuff. Keep it coming, guys!

Unreal: All hallows sunset.

Its a beautiful theme for a level that takes place on a floating island. smile

If you listen closely, you can hear the mystic wind sound playing in the background....
The Banjo and Violin are also very great too smile

Wikipedia on the Plasma speaker (evolved Singing Arc)
and the Singing Tesla Coil in particular (and rehashed in Zeusaphone
From what I understand, by modulating the current, they make the 'lightning' vibrate at different frequencies. Once you have that mapped, you can feed the music through a program/microcontroller to automatically modulate it for you. Then again, I'm not a scientist and there is no Simple English version of the wikipedia page tounge2
Hmm, here's another link about Plasma speakers.

Terry Riley - In C: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjR4QYsa9nE
This is quite something. Here is a wikipedia excerpt:

In C consists of 53 short, numbered musical phrases, lasting from half a beat to 32 beats; each phrase may be repeated an arbitrary number of times. Each musician has control over which phrase he or she plays: players are encouraged to play the phrases starting at different times, even if they are playing the same phrase. The performance directions state that the musical ensemble should try to stay within two to three phrases of each other. The phrases must be played in order, although some may be skipped. As detailed in some editions of the score, it is customary for one musician to play the note C in repeated eighth notes, typically on a piano or pitched-percussion instrument (e.g. marimba). This functions as a metronome and is referred to as "The Pulse".

In C has no set duration; performances can last as little as fifteen minutes or as long as several hours, although Riley indicates "performances normally average between 45 minutes and an hour and a half." The number of performers may also vary between any two performances. The original recording of the piece was created by 11 musicians (through overdubbing, several dozen instruments were utilized), while a performance in 2006 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall featured 124 musicians.


I heard this a while back in my GCSE music lessons. Our teacher said that we would record our own, but it never happened... Still, I find aleatoric compositions a lot of fun and, while many people may not like this sort of thing, I certainly do. ^^
Oh, and Svanire sounded wonderful. I think there may be more than just string instruments, as you can hear what sounds like instrumentalists taking their breath at times. Lovely find :D

WOW! That in C thing is odd. I see the metronome beat, but gods! I never liked metronomes. It's like.. classical trance. Awesome!

Hello! I was wondering if anyone here could tell me what this instrument here (at around 11 seconds) is. The one that sounds sort of like a wild turkey? (I've been wondering forever about where to ask this question!)

O_o You are going to have to be more clear on what time. I have a feeling most of those are more recordeded sounds played on a track or using a synthesizer. But if it is the whistling sound, it is most likely someone whistling. I know there is definitely a horn in here, though I can't really say what horn. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a kazoo in there. You would have to wait for like Wyvern, or someone who is experienced in a lot of instruments to come answer.

As a fine example for Wyvern's love for the Duduk, here is a song from the Avatar: the last airbender series. Uncle Iroh playing the Tsungi Horn. It is also heard again in the Blue Spirit and Whose Destiny, both also from the series. tounge1

Now I'm wondering, ocarina or duduk. :O

I present to you:


Broccoli Ocarina!

HAHA! I can top you, Sir Fix. Let me introduce you to the Kazookeylele!!! A kazoo and piano attached to a ukelele, made by crous0. I think his best work is Bohemian Rhapsody. But his first work was The Final Countdown. I randomly stumbled upon this instrument earlier today when looking up some kazoo things. It is -awesome-.

And oh man.. the nostalgia!
I used to love it when this man would come on tv with his instrument:
Toby Rix on his Toeterix (Honkerix)
Toxy Rix during a trumpet concert
Toby Rix in more recent years (when he was 80!)

*Eilatan scratches head

He looks like the trolololo guy.. Cow bells, horns, siren, crank.. What else? XD

Fix, this is starting to become a game of "my instrument is bigger than yours". I'm concerned I don't have enough instruments. XD
