Between Two Worlds » TOMITA STUDIO TOUR [1977??]


This clip is what I might describe as a “excellent video tour” of the legend Isao Tomita’s synthesizer studio, taken sometime in the late 1970s. This video is entirely in Japanese, and features some magnificent period machines like the then-new ROLAND MC-8, the MOOG SYSTEM 55, and what appears to be an early version of the OTARI MTR-90 16 track recorder – among many, many other fine machines! It seems so crammed up in there! There is also a portion of this video that is most touching. At approx 5:33, you are transported to a classroom where there’s a Junior High synthesizer ensemble rehearsing Dvorák’s “New World Symphony” (4th movement) (thx Josh!) on their Yamaha CS machines .  Anybody have any translated insight or information to share regarding this video?
