This incredible video comes from the YouTube channel 'Franzoli Electronics'. This is not merely a light show—it’s so, so much cooler than that. The purple sparks produced by the coils create the music. 

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.

You can find many more of these “musicoils” at the Franzoli Electronics YouTube page. Some tracks really translate with this unique format.
