Cornelius — English-speaking adult chimpanzee, Trattoria sound honcho, and shiny pop-cultural icon Keigo Oyamada — has some of the fanciest fingers in the modern world of modern music. Using the studio as musical tool, and using this tool as a tool of precision, Cornelius makes music in the same way so many lonely men in the lonely lectro world do. But the results that come from his one-man-studio-borne, conceptually-briefed and arranged-to-within-an-inch-of-their-life exercises in audio are hardly the austere stuff of the abstract-electro realm's boys'-club intelligentsia. Full, fun, silly and foppishly flipping through the big book of musical genres with more flagrant whim and self-conscious study than a Beck record, Cornelius' symphonies to op-shop soundtracks, beachside harmonies, pop-cultural kitsch, cut-'n'-paste techniques and the hoary notion of the "journey through music" are so prettily preened, so utterly pompous as they perambulate through so much grand-scale scenes-and-scenery, scaling grand heights of longplaying recording as the tracks ship from one shore to the next, the dexterously spun jumbles of played sounds so stylishly pulling off their conceitedly conceived, most magnanimous magnificence, that all you can really do is sit back and politely applaud. Point, subtitled "from Nakameguro to Everywhere," is Cornelius' latest such journey, following on in the same steps from the silly spun sonics and fantastic-voyage frolics that made 69/96 and Fantasma such lauded larks. One could mention the developments from the second-to-last record to the last record to this, but pulling out threads of different strains of sewn-in influence could easily unravel the woven wonder of each whole. And Cornelius discs are made whole, for hearing, for sure.
