Tiredofnicks posted a link to an explanation on page 2. I only watched the beginning of the video he linked to: if I understood it aright, they're using digital circuitry to switch the coil on and off at whatever frequency corresponds to a given tone. Kind of a cheat, in other words. I might have misunderstood the details, though.

A lot of "point-and-shoot" cameras use the flash automatically when it's dark out.

So what? Computer science students were doing things like that with processors and punched tape decades ago.

Put a radio near the processor (back in the good old days) and feed it the right input. Now they use a tesla coil. I guess every science's students get bored once in a while ;)

freakin awesome, it'd be sweet to incorporate this into like a live rock show right in the middle of the stage. how would u amplify it without getting getting the mics too close to the arc tho hmmm

Haha, my dad had me Google some plans on how to make a Tesla coil after I mentioned this.

Also, I have Tetris in my head now. >_< ¬

The_ocartina: The tesla coil _IS_ making the sound. Yes it's hooked up to a keyboard, but there're no 'conventional' speakers anywhere.
Search Youtube for 'plasmasonic' and you'll find some very high-fidelity stuff.

were people taking photos with the flash on? or was that residual light from the tesla? as far as I know, the tesla will only light up in one continuous fashion, no erratic flashes meaning some people were taking pictures with the flash on........
