Kaki King Unveils Plans For New Multi-media Performance On March 6th 2014

Kaki King has announced the premiere of a groundbreaking new work. The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body sees the renowned guitarist/composer joining forces with Visual Performance pioneers Glowing Pictures to construct an innovative, immersive multi-media production in which The Guitar itself takes centerstage. The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body will debut March 6th at Brooklyn's BRIC House Ballroom, with performances scheduled for 7:30 PM and 9:30 PM -
 
The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body lays bare The Guitar's inner life and protean power, its incalculable possibility and perpetual presence in our deepest unconscious. The hour-long production places the focus directly on The Guitar itself, the Instrument serving as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other ever presented.
 
King and Glowing Pictures - known for their work with such artists as Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio - have reconceived The Guitar as a screen for a remarkable range of new digital projections. Luminous visions of genesis and death, unexpected textures and skins, are cast onto a Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. The Guitar gradually evolves, taking on a living, breathing existence of its own, complete with friends, family, and complex skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body is Kaki King at her visionary best, as ever deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, outsized imagination, and boundless humanity.
 
"The Guitar is a shapeshifter," King says, "something that plays all types of music and really fills all kinds of roles. It's not always the six-string guitar that we all know and love. I've been playing guitar for more than 30 years. It's who I am and if anything, this project has made me even more familiar with it."
