ContinuuCon – The Continuum Fingerboard Conference

ContinuuCon, the First Continuum Fingerboard Conference, took place June 9–11, 2016 in Asheville, NC.

The event focused on the Haken Audio Continuum – a highly expressive music synthesizer and controller – and featured concerts, workshops, lectures and more. Speakers included: Dr. Lippold Haken, inventor of the Continuum; and Edmund Eagan, developer of the Continuum’s synthesis engine EaganMatrix. And it featured performances by Eagan, Rob Schwimmer, Pallav Pandya, Wayne Kirby and others.
