Notes

On September 8, 1984, Isao Tomita presented a live, outdoor concert on the shore of the Danube River in Linz, Austria, for an audience of 80,000 people. The concert was called The Mind of the Universe, and through his interpretations of classical music, Mr. Tomita was attempting to describe the 15-billion-year history of the universe.

He employed 13 channels of sound, including one from a helicopter 1,500 feet above the river, multi-channels on either side of the river and on a ship that also carried the violinist, shakuhachi player and a chorus of 100 Austrian singers. Special lighting, lasers, fireworks and other visual effects enhanced the sound presentation. Tomita's "stage", where he controlled the sound, was a specially constructed pyramid suspended from a crane near the river.

"The Mind Of The Universe" was the first in a series of concerts called "Ars Electronica". It was recorded live by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF).

Artist name appears on labels as "Tomita & The Plasma Symphony Orchestra"
