Organizers of ContinuuCon, the international Haken Continuum Conference, have announced that it will be held again in Asheville, NC, May 30 – June 1, 2019.
Over the last few years, organizers have established ContinuuCon as a leading event for the exploration of expressive electronic music synthesis and performance. Last year’s event, held in Paris at IRCAM (the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique), saw the introduction of the new ContinuuMini synthesizer and Christophe Duquesne’s La Voix Du Luthier acoustic resonators.
Here’s what organizers have to say about this year’s event:
Performers, sound designers, composers and electronic music enthusiasts who attend ContinuuCon explore this uniquely expressive instrument through music, workshops, lectures and more.
Dr. Lippold Haken, inventor of the Continuum and ContinuuMini, and Edmund Eagan, developer of the Continuum’s synthesis engine EaganMatrix, along with many other technologists and performers, openly share their knowledge, history and musical talents at this event.
The 2019 event will be hosted by the University of North Carolina Asheville Department of Music. Tickets are now available at the event site.
