Forks In Sockets - Vela

Jack Hooker

2013

Vela is an 8-minute piece written by Jack for Pyramider (a musical Tesla Coil) and backing audio. The piece was performed at 'Forks in Sockets - an Electric Spectacle' in September 2013 at the VUW School of Design, Wellington. 

Pyramider is a Tesla Coil, using a water-cooled, computer controlled, high voltage transistor to pump out musical two-meter arcs of electricity. The Pyramider is the first of it's kind in New Zealand, and was designed and built by Josh Bailey and Patrick Herd.
