CFL Singing Arc

can you use a clf ballest to power a singing arc. My idea is to connect the 1kohm side of an audio output transformer to the 120vac input of a cfl and connect the other side to a cd player. I will turn the ac to dc by putting in a 1amp diode. so will it work? Also will a commom 3kv cfl work with dc? Please Answer! Please  Answer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
