The First Haken Continuum Conference
June 9-11, 2016 in Asheville, NC
The Haken Continuum Fingerboard, described by many as the most expressive electronic musical instrument ever invented, counts Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack composer A.R. Rahman, Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess and arena-packing EDM artist Amon Tobin among its players.
To celebrate this groundbreaking instrument, ContinuuCon, the First Continuum Fingerboard Conference will take place on June 9–11, 2016, at the Altamont Theatre in Asheville, NC. With sponsors including the Bob Moog Foundation and modular synthesizer manufacturer Make Noise, the event will open with a Thursday evening reception at the Make Noise factory in West Asheville.
Performers, sound designers, composers and electronic music enthusiasts who attend ContinuuCon will explore this uniquely expressive instrument through concerts, workshops, lectures and more. Dr. Lippold Haken, inventor of the Continuum, and Edmund Eagan, developer of the Continuum’s synthesis engine EaganMatrix, will be among those sharing their knowledge and musical talents.
