Outline

This music video for Cornelius’s song, If You’re Here, depicts a room at night. No one is there. Objects in the room react one by one to all the sounds used in the song. A necklace, a key, a photo frame, coffee…these are all objects associated with the “you” being sung about. An audio image is created in perfect synchronization with the song so that the “absence and memories” of “you” emerge.
