ABOUT
Daksyba are a collective of audio and visual artists from a range
of creative disciplines, combining voice, percussion, strings, didgeridoo, digital sound and video.

Daksyba Performance @ OV London Festival 2013

“Art is mostly experienced as the aftermath of the creative process. It may be composed, rehearsed, performed or recorded and as such it is but a reflection of that process. Improvisation, as a premise, invites the artist and spectator to share a moment and witness art as a unique event as it emerges, truly in the here and now” – Illi Adato, Artistic Director, Art of the Moment.

Art of The Moment is a 2 day event integrating music, dance and visual arts in fresh new ways and re-examining the relationship between the different medium. It is a celebration of art created in the glorious uncertainty of the here and now, deep in the heart of spontaneous composition.

The festival will feature contributions from the likes of the amazing Oren Marshall (collaborations include Radiohead and Charlie Haden), Maggie Nicols, Anton Mobin, Phil Minton, The Irrepressibles, Matt Black (Ninja Tune, Coldcut), h2dance, Mixmaster Morris and many other leading artists in the field.

It takes place in one of London’s most fascinating art hubs, The Albert in Queen’s Park, and is open to everyone to come and enjoy, explore, experience and get involved.

Mix Codex::Kore 2 User pages ‘jumping’ / changing when moving knobs to adjust sound parameters

I have been delving ‘under the hood’ with Native Instruments Kore 2 lately and I am having a problem with the hardware. Quite frequently I will be editing a parameter with the knobs and the user page switches to a different page. Obviously this is annoying as I am then editing the wrong parameter!

I am guessing you may have found this page as you are having the same problem? Well, you are in luck! Check out the solution below.

 

 

 

 

 

Solution/Workaround: This is definitely an electrical interference problem which is not alone solved with good earth as discussed in this thread (I checked with a multimeter). When touching and/or moving encoders be sure to make contact with the aluminium housing (I usually just rest my hand on the base of the controller) and this will dissipate the interference.

Alternatively, you could also make something to fit the kensington lock on the controller which conducts to the computer case or similar. Also worth noting is the quality of cables used and are any of them close to higher voltage wires (shielding issues).

On a similar note here is a video discussing the use of footswitches:
