Just over a month since French duo Daft Punk, made up of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, announced they would be splitting after 28 years , another tribute to the act has been shared by Electronic artist Fabricio H. Using Tesla coils — radio frequency oscillators which produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity — Franzoli has recreated Daft Punk's iconic hit 'Around The World', taken from the duo's debut LP 'Homework'. They are literally playing the music due to the programmed phase, pulse width and firing frequency! It looks even better in person and sounds almost the same, just louder than people expect! Elswhere, following the duo's split, Manchester-based Kaleidoscope Orchestra announced plans for two back-to-back shows on the 20th August this year, with candlelit, orchestral renditions of some of Daft Punk's best-loved hits taking place in Manchester Cathedral.
