Past Event Sound Series: Cornelius

A man with black hair and wearing a black turtleneck sweater is holding a black Apple MacBook laptop with both of his hands. There is a colorbar on the screen of the laptop.

We welcome Cornelius (aka Japanese multi-instrumentalist Keigo Oyamada) to the Carnegie Lecture Hall. Beginning with his 1997 release Fantasma on Matador Records, Cornelius (the name is an homage to the Planet of the Apes) gained much critical praise as the “modern day Brian Wilson” for his lush orchestral/pop arrangements and quickly became an in-demand producer working with artists such as Beck, Bloc Party, and MGMT. Oyamada’s forays into scoring films include Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and the anime mega-film Ghost in the Shell Arise, as well as being a key performer in Yoko Ono’s reformed Plastic Ono Band.

Co-presented with Carnegie Museum of Art and STRANGEWAYS.
