Continua is a duet for cellist and live coder, each playing a hybrid instrument based on the Halldorophone, an electroacoustic instrument in which electromagnetically-controlled feedback can be induced independently on each string. The physical interface ostensibly affords a traditional gestural performance practice, but one that is substantially altered by the nonlinear, generative feedback processes; the electronic interface allows for remote digital intervention and performance via live-coding, but is augmented by the physical interface.
