Influenced by "the three B's" - Beck, The Beatles, and The Beach Boys - Cornelius is considered a musical genius and one of the most important and well-known figures in Shibuya-kei and the Japanese electronic scene. His music is atmospheric and thought-provoking, experimenting and exploring with seemingly dissonant or mundane sounds to create richly layered soundscapes.

A household name in Japan and a cult-favorite overseas, Cornelius's talents and influence in the music industry have an incredible range: in addition to his own work, he has collaborated with a number of musicians, and produced and recorded music for commercials and TV productions.
