Expressive Electronic Instrument Conference ContinuuCon coming to Portugal May 17 – 19, 2023


Organizers of ContinuuCon 2023, an international expressive instrument conference that focuses on the Haken Continuum and other EaganMatrix Instruments, have announced that this year’s conference will be held May 17–19 in Palmela, Portugal.

Previous Continuum conferences have been held at IRCAM in Paris and in Asheville, North Carolina.


The focus of this year’s conference is expanding to include all electronic musical instruments that feature the Continuum’s internal sound engine, the EaganMatrix. This includes:

  • The new Expressive E Osmose synthesizer;
  • The Continuum Fingerboard;
  • The ContinuuMini; and
  • The EaganMatrix Module for Eurorack modular systems.


As in previous years, the conference offers attendees a chance to explore these uniquely expressive electronic instruments through presentations, performances, and hands-on experience.

ContinuuCon 2023 is timed to start on May 17th, four days after Superbooth ends in Berlin. This will make it possible for musicians to extend their European trip and experience both the latest in electronic music gear and the state-of-the-art in expressive electronic instruments.

Over the following two days, Continuum and Osmose experts and master musicians will present lectures and demos at the Palmela Public Library.

University of Illinois professor Dr. Lippold Haken and Canadian film and TV composer Edmund Eagan – developers of the EaganMatrix and the Continuum family of instruments – will be on hand throughout the event, along with Expressive E and other experts on expressive instruments.

Haken Continuum players include Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi, Brazilian electro-acoustic musician Amon Tobin, film composer A.R. Rahman, Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess, and The Who’s Pete Townshend. “I absolutely adore it,” explains Townshend. “The Continuum is already inspiring me to new ideas.”
