Tomita's opus consists of six parts: As an introduction, 30 minutes before the beginning of the performance as such, the public is presented a distant kind of sound, very soft, very quiet - just as if it were coming directly from outer space. Then the concert begins:
"MIND OF UNIVERSE" tries to incorporate almost all means of artistic design in open space: Light, laser, fireworks, reflections, projections on surfaces of water and smoke, light columns, light pyramids, a helicopter as UFO and others.
In the past few years a growing number of one-dimensional visual events in the open space have been developed, be it fantastic lasershows, fireworks or the Fire Theatre. "Mind Of Universe" consists of the basic elements light and fire on one, the achievements of computer- and synthesizer technology on the other hand. Nature and High Technology are united in the tale about the history of the universe.
The Danube Park as an area of events is marked and framed by light columns, on the Danube the ships with the participants on board are in a constant dialogue with the universe: a chorus vessel with a choir of 100 persons, a ship for two soloists (violin and japanese flute), as well as a ship for additional light sculptures. Banks of mist and walls of water serve as projection screens for the laser; a helicopter - equipped with full sound and light - appears as an UFO, tries to get in contact with infinity.
Isao Tomita himself floats in a 5-tons light pyramid as control unit, as musical and technical High-Tech-Centre high above the river Danube.
MIND OF UNIVERSE wants to introduce a new dimension to experience art: a Spectaculum Mundi of the Electronic Age.
