Visions: Mission Andromeda is a science-fiction story set to music that warns of the conflict
between good and evil which wages eternally within every person. Visions is performed by the rock band with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.


This rock musical play carries a message of such impact, it needed to pioneer a new technology to tell it.
Thirty years ago, in 1983, a group of three musicians, Skip Prest, John Hall and Rocket Norton calling themselves The Experimental Warrior, wrote Visions Mission Andromeda. John Hall and Rocket Norton performed with the Juno Award winning band PRiSM. Skip Prest performed with the Juno Award winning band Sweeney Todd.
The play was conceived specifically to be performed live in a Planetarium star-theatre. Roundhouse Productions, innovative producers of Laser Light Shows in the H.R. MacMillan Planetarium in Vancouver, worked with The Experimental Warrior to invent a system whereby the live musicians could “synch” with the computer generated visual effects. The result was a historic, ground-breaking three week run of Visions Mission Andromeda at the H.R. MacMillan Planetarium. It was the first time in the world that a musical group had performed live in synch with a laser light show in simulated space. The run was a tremendous success with just about all of the performances selling-out. Two years later there was a performance of Visions Mission Andromeda with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. That too sold-out. Then, mysteriously, Visions: Mission Andromeda vanished... until now.
Keith Stein recorded and mixed the studio tracks with Roger Monk as engineer of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra sessions. John Hall recorded the live version with a Sony Betamax PCM deck.
