Events & Ceremonies
Staged to display the life-affirming activities of the people of Hyogo Prefecture, "Fureai Festival 2000" was held at the outdoor stadium of Akashi Park, near Kobe. TOA's speaker system delivered the sounds of all the various performances throughout the field, adding to the enjoyment of each scene of the festival.
This great pageant of sound and light was produced by world-famous fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto. TOA played a key role, supplying its top-of-the-line, touring-quality speaker system for an impressive sound with high power output and clear, distortion-free sound quality.
Istiqlal Mosque, located in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, the world’s largest Islamic country, is the biggest mosque in Southeast Asia and can accommodate 16,000 worshippers. TOA installed a public address system in this giant mosque that features column speakers.
The beautifully lit Kobe Luminarie has been held every year to symbolize the ongoing restoration and reconstruction of Kobe following the devastation of 1995's Great Hanshin Earthquake. Adding a poetic charm to winter in Kobe, it now attracts millions of people from all over Japan. TOA has taken responsibility for the Luminarie's main sound presentation from the very first year, and has made the lights seem brighter and more colorful by creating a musical accompaniment specially suited to each year's new theme. TOA's advanced technical know-how helps create a visionary world, with the music changing as people stroll through the arches of light, and sound effects scattered across the entire site, all culminating in an inspiring harmony that brings the closing ceremony to a poignant end.
