ContinuuCon 2016 Was A Success!

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 took 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 opened with a Thursday evening reception at the Make Noise factory in West Asheville.

Performers, sound designers, composers and electronic music enthusiasts who attended ContinuuCon explored 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, were among those sharing their knowledge and musical talents. Thanks go to our sponsors and all who helped with the innumerable tasks necessary to make ContinuuCon a reality. It was the most inspiring weekend of music and technology many of us have ever experienced.
