If you're trying to reproduce the musical tesla coils, I _think_ what they did was modulate the input to the coil. I'm sure that if you contact the folks who built those they'd be glad to enthuse about what was involved.

It's either the musical tesla coil or the world's meanest practical joke....

It'll only work if the tesla coil has a PS/2 port.

Look at the "plasma-speaker" Instructables, feed the audio-out into one of them.
