Recording Tesla coil sound effects and more sounds at the Science Center in Singapore

Since I got the LOM Priezor, I’ve become obsessed with electromagnetic fields and recording sounds from electricity! While in Singapore, I went to the Science Center here in Singapore to record different effects including the Tesla Coil.

Not only did I see the Tesla coil, but I also recorded many sounds like…
– Changing frequency with sand – contact microphone
– Drum box – contact microphone
– Earthquake simulation – contact microphone
– Electromagnetic Fields at Jacob’s Ladder – Priezor
– Electromagnetic Field in Plasma Bowl – Priezor
– Old Jamaican drum machine with air – Contact Microphone
– Rolling money in a funnel – Contact Microphone
– Water bubbles – Contact Microphone


Changing frequency with sand
With my contact microphone, I attached it on top of the bowl and turned a wheel which was used as the compressor with the sand and it changed the frequency of sound.

Drum box
While walking to the second floor there was a drum box and it had “Tap here” written on it… so I did. At the back of the box was the speaker and I attached the microphone right there and got a nice bass sound.

Earthquake simulation
There was this little room where they show what it’s like to experience an earthquake. With some BluTack and the AKG, I fixed it to the metal pole in the middle of the room. I picked up the shaking sounds and the engine so it doesn’t sound like an earthquake however it gives you an interesting sound.

Electromagnetic Fields at Jacob’s Ladder
I recorded this sound only with the Priezor because it was impossible to capture clean audio with the other microphones. I pressed the button and between the two electrodes, it produced a continuous train of large sparks that rise up the ladder. I picked up the electromagnetic frequency quite well and it’s a great sound effect to experiment with it.

Electromagnetic Field in Plasma bowl
I saw several of these bowls in films but never paid attention to it. It looks fascinating and if you touch the glass with your hands you can shape and move the electricity inside the bowl. I used the Priezor to catch some of the sounds and I got a very nice effect.

Old Jamaican drum machine with air
This drum machine is so old and works with an air compressor. The drumsticks are connected with the compressor and at the bottom of the machine is a paper roll with the notes that the machine plays. I placed the contact microphone on the side and in the middle of the bowl.

Rolling money in a funnel
I placed a coin at the top of the funnel and let it roll until it hits the ground. The 20 cent recording is shorter because it hit the contact microphone. After replacing a one-dollar coin it created a longer and more interesting sound.

Water bubbles
There were 3 syringes placed in the water and if you push the button you could see bubbles. I placed the contact microphone to the window and recorded these sounds

Tesla coil sound effects
The Science Center put on a show and after the introduction was done the technician activated the Tesla coil and over 4.2 million volts exploded. We had 4 runs of the Tesla coil and for the second one, a volunteer was placed in a cage with headphones and the full power of the electricity run through the cage. The last one was a very quick one. Two balloons filled with gas and after the technician activated the coil again the electricity hit the balloon I recorded it with the DPA 4060 and also with the Priezor.

I hope you have a lot of fun with these sound effects because I had a great time seeing and recording unique audio all the amazing technology at the Science Center!
