Tesla Coil Songs

 Writing Tesla coil music is challenging.  Rearranging existing songs to be Tesla coil covers is even harder.   The coils themselves are very loud abrasive instruments so when we pick a cover, we have some loose criteria that we tend to follow.  First, the song needs to have a strong melody. Second, the song needs to not be so repetitive.  If we’re covering the vocal melody of a song, there needs to be some variation in said melody since we can’t rely on the lyrics or audio effects to add diversity. We often think to ourselves, “Would this sound cool on a trumpet amplified through a distortion pedal?” as a baseline.  Third, the song has to work visually as well as audibly.

We tend to arrange the notes in a way that the melody seems to dance back and forth, making a truly visual spectacle.   It’s easy to download your favorite song in midi format, select a channel, and hope for the best but, we like to go above and beyond that to make each cover song not only sound good, but look good as well.  To the right is a list of cover songs that we hope you enjoy listening to and watching as much as we enjoyed rearranging them.  Below the cover songs list are a bunch of songs you’ve probably never heard. Those are our originals and have been specifically written to showcase our Tesla coils unique abilities.

If you have a song that you’re itching to hear on our Tesla coils hit us up on any of our social media platforms and we will take a look!
