ContinuuCon 2020 Set for April 27-29 In Palmela, Portugal

"ContinuuCon 2020, the fifth annual international Haken Continuum Conference, will take place on April 27–29 in Palmela, Portugal. Musicians and technologists describe the Haken Continuum as the world’s most uniquely expressive electronic musical instrument. As in previous years, ContinuuCon 2020 will extend an opportunity for Continuum players, sound designers, software developers, and electronic music enthusiasts to explore the Continuum Fingerboard and ContinuuMini through performances, workshops, lectures, and more.

University of Illinois professor Dr. Lippold Haken and Canadian film and TV composer Edmund Eagan developed the Continuum, the ContinuuMini, and their internal sound engine, the EaganMatrix, over decades of collaboration. Both men will be on hand throughout the event and will be joined by numerous other authorities to share their knowledge and musical expertise.

On April 27, just two days after Superbooth ends in Berlin, the conference will begin with a reception for attendees followed by a public concert at the Theatre S.Joao in Palmela. For the next two days, master players and authorities on the Continuum will give presentations and demos at the Palmela Public Library.

This ContinmuuCon will be the first opportunity to hear Expressive E's Osmose played together with Continuum -- both of these instruments have fast and accurate continuous sensing, both incorporate the EaganMatrix, and yet the difference between keyboard and continuous surface makes them very unlike each other. The performance by Edmund Eagan (on Continuum) on stage with Piano and Continuum virtuoso Rob Schwimmer (on Osmose) will be a historic not-to-be-missed event.
