If you have a very large amount of voltage then I would not recommend plugging it into any electronic device. Of course if you have a lesser voltage then it could work. But if you have that low of a voltage then your tesla coil might as well be a very large Duracell battery.

It would be great fun, to play a keyboard in the desert or deep forest for a month without replacing any batteries :-)

Does not sound like a good idea. Yes, a second identical tesla coil can act as an antenna and recover a small amount of the RF that the transmitting tesla coil. You will need some circuitry to condition the recovered power to make it usable.

How do you filter out the interference or make sure the high voltage is not toasting your electronics?
If you want music get a stereo or amplifier, if you want big and long arcs use a Tesla generator but don't mix the two ;)

It's probably not very healthy for the electronics to hit them with several tens of thousand volts...
