NIMBY’s “Do It for Haiti” fundraiser.

Sometimes, even when things go wrong, they look awesome. Here’s a shot from our Do It for Haiti show that William Keller caught of a strike to our secondary coil. OUCH! That’s not supposed to happen.

Great shot, but that’s going to take a LOT of work back at the shop to fix. Most likely we’re going to have to replace that secondary completely.

Jon Sarriugarte caught some great footage of our show at NIMBY for the “Do It for Haiti” fundraiser.

Sand by the Ton

Another adventure in hanging the coil from a crane. This time we, Omega Recoil, hung our entire setup from a gantry crane at American Steel Studios for Sand by the Ton. It was quite an effort – we even had to get the broken crane running for the first time in who knows how long. There were a lot of challenges – our first show was stopped short by the Fire Marshall due to the crowd we drew. In the end it was well worth it. We had a show where both the performer and the Tesla Coil were able to move around the performance space.

Sadly I didn’t get too many photos this time, but here is one:

Sausalito Lighted Yacht Parade

A very last minute adventure. Omega Recoil was invited by Dan Das Mann to participate with a number of other artist in the Sausalito Lighted Yacht Parade.  We weren’t sure just what to expect, and there was a constant threat that the weather would turn bad, but we risked it and hung our Tesla Coil from a crane, over the side of The R/V White Holly.  It was great and the rain held off until it was time to load out.

There are a few photos on Flickr.

And a stunning video:
