About the Haken Continuum
Designed by Dr. Lippold Haken and manufactured by Haken Audio, the Continuum Fingerboard is a musical instrument that allows unprecedented realtime performance control. With a greater pitch range than a traditional 88 note Midi keyboard, the Continuum offers realtime continuous control in three dimensions for every finger that is placed on the playing surface.
Included internally is a custom designed user programmable synthesizer, specifically programmed to take advantage of the subtle and dramatic expressive musical possibilities of the Continuum.
The Continuum is available in full-size (nearly 8 octaves) and half-size (nearly 4 octaves) versions.
ContinuuCon 2016 and 2017 took place in Asheville, NC. They the first ever Haken Continuum conferences, and celebrated this uniquely expressive musical instrument with concerts, workshops, lectures and more.
We are proud to announce that ContinuuCon 2018 will take place in Paris, at IRCAM!
