‘Beyond The Sky’ For Haken Continuum & Piano, By Rob Schwimmer


Thereminist & Continuum virtuoso Rob Schwimmer shared this music video for an original composition, Beyond The Sky.

The performance showcases the expressive possibilities of the Haken Continuum synthesizer.

I love the Haken Continuum! It continues to blow my mind… ” says Schwimmer. “The flexibility and immediacy of thought to sound is just like an acoustic instrument, playing wise, and allows me to apply my piano, theremin, electric guitar playing, directly, while also embracing that which the Continuum can do, which nothing else can!”

Beyond The Sky features Continuum lead, piano accompaniment and Alesis Andromeda pads. Here’s what Schwimmer shared about the technical details:

“My exploration of outer space and music-An original piece, the main and very expressive lead instrument is Haken Continuum with my backing track on piano and (appropriately) Andromeda. When I finished the recording it really did feel Beyond the Sky to me so what could be more perfect than the incredible NASA photos from the Hubble and Webb telescopes!

This is also a tribute to one of my lifelong guitar heroes who passed away last year. Thinking of his music still resonating in space…”
