Cornelius, the rock/electronic project of enigmatic Japanese multi-instrumentalist Keigo Oyamada, will play in Bangkok on Nov 7.
After making his name with Flipper's Guitar in the late '80s and early '90s, Keigo started recording under the moniker Cornelius (a homage to the Planet of the Apes), with 1997 album Fantasma earning him comparisons to the likes of Beck and Beastie Boys for its creative cut-and-paste production style. He followed that up with 2002's Point that showcased a more organic sound based on looping "found sounds."
His most recent album, Mellow Waves, released in 2017, revelled in a deconstructed, retro-futuristic sound.
Across his three-decade-long career, Cornelius has also remixed the likes of Blur and MGMT, and been nominated for “Best Surround Sound Album” at the 2009 Grammy Awards.
Cornelius last played Bangkok in 2013. Tickets for his forthcoming show go on sale Oct 1 via Ticketmelon.com
starting from B1,900.
