Established in 2004, The Warhol’s Sound Series program features a broad range of artists and bands from around the world that blur genres of contemporary independent music. These live music performances challenge conventional perceptions of art and provide audiences with diverse performance experiences. Sound Series is inspired by Warhol’s extensive involvement in music as an album cover designer, manager, and record producer.
Sound Series: Cornelius
Saturday, March 10 at 8:00 pm at Carnegie Lecture Hall
The Warhol welcomes 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. He quickly became an in-demand producer working with artists such as Beck, Bloc Party, and MGMT.
