Here’s a new video demo for the Karlax – a new electronic instrument designed to “re-establish the artist’s body at the heart of the performance.”
Check out the video demo and let us know what you think about the Karlax!
When the instrument was introduced in 2010, we called the Karlax ‘The Most Bizarre New Instrument Of The Year’.
The Karlax is designed to capture a variety of expressive movements, which can be accessed in a simple, intuitive manner and to offer ‘real time absolute control’. Its sensors are fitted to precision mechanics components. The architecture allows pistons, keys, switches, benders, triggers, a rotation axis and an inertial unit (comprising an inclinometer, accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope) to be activated separately or simultaneously.
The Karlax Visionary Pack, which includes the instrument, cases, Karlax MIDI or OSC receiver, charger, cables and software, is priced at 4 700€.
See the Karlax site for details.
