The Canadian Pavilion

Canada presented a diverse and modern image in its pavilion at Expo 67.

What a find! The moving artwork with the changing light and sound was beautifully surreal. The various pieces atop the Katimavik were also pretty neat/strange. Also, the music at the end is fantastic! Any idea who/what it is?

There's a credit at the end of the film for "Music for Katimavik": Otto Joachim.

I went to Notre-Dame island for the floralies in the early 80's and a similar (rusted and not moving anymore) artwork was at the entrance of the still remaining building of the Canadian pavilion.
I think the Otto Joachim music for Katimavik is more big band music than rock & roll. The electronic music for the moving artwork was great.

Wasnt there a metal sculpture of a sea monster called UKI that breathed fire and came up out of the water every hour outside the Canada Pavilion? Nothing is ever said about this...

ps...is there plans of the pavilion's layout?
