Guy Covers Toto's 'Africa' Using Dual High-Voltage Tesla Coil Setup

This is the perfect combination of science and music.

This is the perfect combination of science and music: Franzoli Electronics uses Tesla Coils to make some noise and play everyone's favorite '80s banger, Africa by Toto. Also, for the experience of listening to the song, you get a light show. 

As you might have guessed, the purple sparks of electricity that are produced by the coils bounce to create the music. Here’s the official description for the video:

"For those who did not understand what is going on this video, here's a brief explanation: The main loud music really comes from the tesla coil sparks. They are literally playing the music due to the programmed phase, pulse width, and firing frequency!

"So, there are no speakers, no audio/video special effects. It looks even better in person and sounds almost the same, just without the beat/percussion backing track."

Would you pay to see this at a concert? We hear the coils echoing tonight already...
