  1. I have no idea what he's saying but it's really fun anyway.

    It's interesting how small his studio is compared to somebody like Vangelis!

  4. rough translation.. sorry about my imperfect english

    News Anchor : there are so many machines in the room !

    Tomita : yes there are so many of them. i have been busy working for the music festival

    News. Anchor: the mic… everything sounds the same. .. let me see.. oh my voice sounds the same too

    Narration: use simple sounds to morph into attractive music.. these numbers these are musical notes

    Tomita : i sort of wanted to be a conductor, but i am not good with people so i started composing

    i can make and express music through these devices exactly how i image in my head.
