Learn about the history and development of one of the most expressive and versatile electronic music instruments around! The Haken Continuum Fingerboard has been around for several years and is still being developed further and further. It gets its expressiveness from the incomparable surface that acts as the user interface and offers real-time continuous control in three dimensions for every finger that is placed on the playing surface!

As well as presenting the Continuum Christophe brought a special speaker with him, to give us the very rare chance to hear the La Voix du Luthier Onde – this exceptional approach to the construction of a speaker. There is no traditional speaker cone inside, only acoustic exciters transmitting the vibration into the wood. It is the same principle as for a guitar: the strings themselves make very little sound, but they are transmitting their vibrations to the soundboard through the bridge, and what you hear is the sonic amplification via the soundboard. In case of the Onde the exciter is acting as the bridge and transmits the electric “vibrations” to the wood. The Onde gives you a very immersive sound and the chance to experience electronic sound sources in a totally new way.

This incredible sound can hardly be recorded – so make sure to come to SUPERBOOTH19 to get another chance!
