Tesla Coil of the Mountain King

Long-time readers of this blog may remember that a couple of years ago I attempted to make a point about putting individual stamps on megadungeons through different interpretations of music, using Edvard Grieg's Hall of the Mountain King as my example.

While I would encourage everyone to read (or re-read, as the case may be) that original post, because I think the point still stands, I happened across the following and thought I'd share it because it's just too effing cool not to. Had I seen this back then, I certainly would have included it.


"They all get played differently by those who run them. But they all start with the same music. And that's the point. Publish the same music, and get a million different songs. Such is the beauty of the megadungeon"

Sorry, but that if the person who posted that video claims that they used it to play 'Hall of the Mountain King,' then they are trying to put on over on the audience.

I've operated a very large Tesla coil, and it doesn't work like that.

Which of course takes nothing away from either your point, or Edvard Grieg.

I've seen and heard music played on Tesla coils at Maker Faire. Yours was an insufficiently musical Tesla coil.
