This double album was recorded during five concerts in Beijin and Shanghai in October 1981, the first performances of contemporary music ever given in the People's Republic of China.
"Nuit À Shanghai", "Harpe Laser", "Arpegiateur", "Orient Express", "Souvenir De Chine" and "Jonques De Pêcheurs Au Crépuscule" were composed especially for this occasion.
The last 35 seconds of "Equinoxe VII" on the B-side are cut into the record as a new track. This gives the impression that the B-side plays 4 tracks, although it actually plays only 3 tracks.
The inner sleeves erroneously list "Harpe Laser" as track B4 instead of track C5.
Characteristics that differentiate this release from releases 344438 and 1455465:
- centre labels have "oriental style" fonts
- the "Gravure Jack Skinner/Sterling Sound" line has been removed from the inner sleeve of record 2 (the artwork shows a blank line).
