ContinuuCon 2016 Announced

via Haken Audio

"Continuum Enthusiasts –

ContinuuCon will be June 9-11 in Asheville NC. Asheville is in a beautiful part of the USA, even more amazing than central Illinois where I live. (Here in Illinois we have both kinds of plants, corn *and* soybeans, so central Illinois is pretty cool too, but come here some other time.) If you are unfamiliar with Asheville, check out this short video showing Asheville time-lapsed dawn-to-dusk, and you may be inspired to join us:

ContinuuCon is being organized by Asheville area Continuum owners, and is sponsored by the Bob Moog Foundation, MakeNoise, and I am really pleased they are doing it – I was not involved in organizing the event, but Ed Eagan and I will drive there to join everyone taking part.

ContinuuCon is not a sales event, and there will be no special announcements or sales hype at ContinuuCon. The idea of ContinuuCon is that we all come together, get to know each other, and learn from each other. I will give a talk/demonstration that will show you much of the process of building a Continuum (including a live demonstration of the Continuum-Playing Lego Robot I use for testing Continuums), and I will show some of the Continuum insides and how explain why the Continuum has all those expensive guts, and I will bring some historical artifacts. But that’s just my talk, there will be lots of other presentations, concerts, and sharing of playing techniques, sound design techniques, and ideas. You will see some new things people are working on, including Ed’s new Surface Shaper he is bringing from Canada, and Christophe’s Wireless Remote he is bringing from France. (Speaking of Christophe, be sure to ask about his experience with Vangelis.)

I am thrilled ContinuuCon is happening. It is all being organized by people that purchased a Continuum and have gotten to like it enough to organize the conference. I can’t express how thankful I am that the Continuum means so much to people.


PS: The official website is – check it out, then buy your tickets!

PPS: If you want to give a presentation or performance, I don’t know if times are still available, I am not an organizer of this event – but you can email … If you are one of those Famous Individuals but do not want to give a presentation or performance or talk, that’s fine too, just come lurk!

PPPS: A message from Sally Sparks (of Asheville NC): Don't forget to snag your tickets for ContinuuCon 2016 before the end of the month to ensure the lower rate!"
