Oral History Information
Ed Eagan was strongly encouraged and inspired by his music teachers growing up including his high school orchestra instructor who flamed Ed’s love of making music. While studying oboe, piano and composition in college, Ed was introduced to the developing technology behind electronic musical instruments. He worked in a music store, on radio and started his own production company, all the while tinkering with new music technology. When his friend Leopold Haken embarked on a musical endeavor to create a unique instrument, Ed was eager to join the team. They created the Continuum Fingerboard with a sound engine within the instrument. As Ed continues to improve on the design of the instrument, he is able to once again bring his passion of music front and center.
