At Superbooth 2022, vendors were invited to share musical demos of their instruments. This video captures the performance of Edmund Eagan and Christophe Duquesne, performing with some of the latest gear from La Voix du Luthier and Haken Audio.

Both companies focus on creating instruments that remove some of the boundaries between acoustic and electronic instruments.

Haken Audio creates the Continuum family of instruments, which are synthesizers designed to give you the same degree of per-note expressive control as traditional instruments. La Voix du Luthier creates a line of acoustic resonators, which turn your synthesizer into a hybrid acoustic/electric instrument.

In this performance, both Eagan and Duquesne play members of the Continuum family through resonators, La Voix du Luthier’s Pyramide and Onde.

The effect of these resonators is that the sound doesn’t come from speakers, it comes from the resonating body of the instrument. And, like any acoustic instrument, the physical qualities of the instrument body affect the resulting sound. The result blurs the line between acoustic and electronic sounds.
