Is there a way to make el wire response on music with a tip31?

Hello guys

Is there a way to make el wire response on music with a tip31?

I  have to make el wire response on music this is for a project for school can someone give me flow chart/blue print of how to make this?
 
Many thanks 

P.S Sorry for my bad English I am from the Neterlands

I'd assume that if you hook up the power circuit to the transistor then yes. However, it won't work if el wire has a start up time. (sorta like how fluorescent tubes take a second or two to come on.)
I used to have some el wire a long time ago, but unfortunately I can't remember if it has a start up period or not. :(

I have EL drivers with adjustable blink rate that goes very slow and and
also so fast that it blends into a continuous light that must be rotated to
notice it flickers.

Conclusion EL is as fast as as a disc capacitor which IT IN FACT IS

IF the wire is hundreds of feet long its increased capacitance might
reduce HF response :-)

That is just a simple transistor.

EL wire needs an oscillator of a 200-400 cycle 60-140 VAC waveform

The small current is a function of the length of EL wire..
