ArcAttack at the What IF... Festival of Innovation and Imagination
1:00 and 4:30 (Sat.)
Pikes Peak Center, Colorado Springs
Renowned high-tech performance art group ArcAttack will make its Colorado premiere of its spectacular science rock show at the What IF… Festival of Innovation and Imagination, produced by Imagination Celebration and presented by Xfinity.
ArcAttack began inventing the first generation of custom-built singing Tesla coil technology in Austin, Texas, in 2005. Since then, the coils shooting lightning through the air and into stuntmen’s instruments have been seen on America’s Got Talent, National Geographic’s Known Universe, and David Blaine stunts. They have added can crushers, voltage multipliers, and a fully automated robotic drummer to the electrifying interactive performance unlike anything most have ever seen.
Tickets $20.05, $14.50, and $12, may be purchased online at www.PikesPeakCenter.com, all TicketsWest outlets, by dialing 520-SHOW or by visiting the Pikes Peak Center or The Broadmoor World Arena Box Offices.
1 pm and 4:30 pm
Pikes Peak Center, 190 S. Cascade Ave. Colorado Springs, CO 80903
Creators of the original Singing Tesla Coil, the crew of ArcAttack use their high-tech wizardry to generate a truly 'electrifying' performance. Combining their love of rock music and their love of science, this is a show you will never forget!
In Austin, Texas, late 2005, ArcAttack began their journey to develop the Singing Tesla Coil with the help of Steve Ward, a veteran Tesla Coiler from Illinois. The product developed quickly, and after several iterations the instrument reached its present form. In 2007, Craig Newswanger of Resonant Studios joined in to provide the fledgling performance with another high-tech spectacle, a robotic drum kit, contributing to the performance. Two custom engineered hand built Tesla Coils throw out electrical arcs up to twelve feet long, each one acting as an instrument with a sound reminiscent of the early days of the synthesizer. A robotic drum set accompanies the spectacle, its high power LED's flashing bright colors with the stroke of each mechanically actuated stick
Part rock concert, part science experiment, the creators of ArcAttack unveil the science behind the spectacle. Combining their love of music with science, the group invites the audience to explore concepts such as electricity, voltage and current, magnetism, robotics, and lightning through a show that’s both entertaining and interactive. The audience is engaged from start to finish as the group’s trusty, completely automated robot drummer King Beat introduces the audience to basic electricity concepts including atoms, charges and batteries, and who came up with all this stuff (Alessandro Volta and Nicola Tesla!).
The show features not only their signature tesla coils as members of the group literally walk through lightning, but fun interactive experiments including the Voltage Multiplier, Can Crusher and more. The audience will see where the future of science (and music!) is headed. Maybe they'll have as much fun as the ArcAttack crew has but either way, fans are sure to be inspired and help leave the world a little better than the way you found it.
