ContinuuCon 2019, the fourth international Haken Continuum conference, will take place on May 30–June 1, 2019, on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Asheville. Anyone who plays, aspires to play, or wants to learn more about the Haken Continuum Fingerboard or the new Haken ContinuuMini is invited to attend. This will be ContinuuCon’s first year back in Asheville after last year’s successful event at IRCAM in Paris.

Two full days of presentations and workshops are scheduled. Guest speakers will include Roger Linn, who designed the first digital drum machine (the LM-1 Drum Computer), the Akai MPC60 music production controller, the AdrenaLinn multi-effects processor, and the LinnStrument multidimensional performance controller; John Worthington, who designed the Jambé electronic percussion instrument and led the team that developed Apple QuickTime; and Moog Music’s Geert Bevin, Belgian programming wizard and co-developer of numerous multidimensional touch instruments. As usual, presentations by University of Illinois Professor Lippold Haken and Canadian composer Edmund Eagan, who co-developed the Continuum Fingerboard, the ContinuuMini, and their onboard sound engine the EaganMatrix, will be among the most popular.

The conference will culminate in the ContinuuConcert, a unique musical performance at 7:30 pm on June 1 in UNCA’s Lipinsky Auditorium. Multi-instrumentalists Rob Schwimmer, Sally Sparks, and UNCA Professor Wayne Kirby will be among the performers. The public is invited to attend for free.

Tickets, complete schedule details, videos, and more information are available at the link below. ContinuuMini owners and others who can’t attend a whole day or the entire conference may purchase half-day tickets for the afternoon of June 1.
