(For Continuum players this was done without Rounding)
Rachmaninoff a la Jeff Beck---This is just one sort of thing that can be done on the incredible Haken Continuum! A tip of the iceberg! I'm a novice on it but it's amazing! So intuitive and organic! Anyway... I've always loved the great guitarists of the 60's--Hendrix, Beck, Clapton, Feiten, etc. As a keyboard player I envied their expressive options--vibrato, note bending, sustain, etc. That's one of the reasons I became a theremin player... (Fact check: I was an electric guitarist throughout junior high and high school doing my best to Hendrix, Clapton, Beck so I do understand playing in that style... Not good enough though: I decided I would give myself 2 weeks of intense practicing and if I wasn't as good as Hendrix or John McLaughlin after 2 weeks, I would quit. Two weeks came--I quit.) I had no real interest in doing this sort of thing on the Continuum but one day I plugged it into my Z, Vex Fuzz Factory and... ta dah! Big fun! I play this piece on piano (Rachmaninoff's Etude Tableau in Ebm op39 #5) and thought I'd see how it went... As I said I'm definitely still a novice and it's far from perfect... but I like it!

PS--For more hot Continuum action please be sure to check out their website at hakenaudio.com/ and also be sure to take a look at Edmund Eagan's Continuum work-- He works with Lippold Haken in developing and designing sounds for it and has an inside and out understanding of the instruments sounds and playing modes...
