KAKI KING: THE NECK IS A BRIDGE TO THE BODY Music & Concerts

The Long Center presents Kaki King: The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, Saturday, September 16 in the Rollins Studio Theatre.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is true iconoclast. Over the past 13 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released 8 extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild, and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.

Her latest work, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body, is Kaki at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist through virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. This groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto her signature ovation Adamas guitar which has been customized specifically for this production.
