Cornelius: salyu x salyu – 15 June

If you’re a lover of Japanese avant-garde, you’re in for a treat this June as one of the country’s most iconic names will make a rare appearance in London and Barcelona. On 15 June Cornelius will return to the UK since his last stint at ATP 2007, making a rare headlining appearance at London’s intimate Jazz Cafe with his salyu x salyu project.

His experimental music combines cheerfully dissonant sounds, pure electronica, samples and magic. salyu x salyu, his most recent production of pop craftsmanship features the face and voice of Salyu, whose ‘Suru Kizu Kaifuku‘ track was featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill. With a long career behind her, Salyu & Cornelius produced s(o)un(d)beams in a meeting of minds that combines the best of both music worlds, including Cornelius himself,Yumiko Ohno of Buffalo Daughter and a full band when performed live.

Tickets are on sale now priced at £15 and available from HMVtickets and TicketMaster. salyu x salyu will also perform at the Sonar Festival in Barcelona on 16 June.


About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
