Abstract

This project is an exploration into the acoustic qualities of Tesla Coils and the physics of sound generation. It includes the construction of a Solid State Tesla Coil capable of replicating the audio production properties of a conventional speaker, as well as a unique musical interface designed to transform the coil into a non conventional musical instrument.
