Disney Concert Hall? really?

On Thursday, January 17, Man-Machine in the Digital City is a visual and sonic experience featuring The Cornelius Group - Synchronized Sensuous Show - a rare, live performance by Tokyo's Cornelius. Dubbed the "Japanese Beck" and the "21st century Brian Wilson," Cornelius brings to Walt Disney Concert Hall this legendary live show, known all over the world for its spectacular visuals, perfectly synchronized to the performance. Cornelius (the name is an homage to the Planet of the Apes) is the brainchild of Japanese multi-instrumentalist Keigo Oyamada, one of the most sought after producer/remixers in the world. From the most populous metropolitan area in the world (Tokyo), Keigo's dynamic music is a soundtrack to city life, having evolved within an intensely urban scene. With his 2007 release, Sensuous, Cornelius explores dazzling atmospherics, bursting with electronic ?pulse waves, wood-grain acoustics, minimalist interludes and raw guitar freak-outs. This disciplined, but wildly experimental sound is at the core of the Synchronized Sensuous Show. He dissects layers of technology, sound, and visual stimuli to form a kaleidoscopic landscape of electronic psychedelia.
