Kaki King: The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body

Kaki King’s 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 center-stage. 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 re-conceived the guitar as a screen for a remarkable range of new digital projections. Luminous visions and unexpected textures are cast onto a signature acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. The guitar gradually evolves, taking on a living, breathing existence of its own.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted. Over her decade-long career, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five extraordinarily diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks (spanning Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild to scoring – and appearing in as guitar-playing hand double – the acclaimed 2007 drama, August Rush), and played to ever-growing audiences on innumerable world tours.

Lisa/Liza, “Maine’s #1 lo-fi folk hypnotist” (according to Owen Ashworth of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone) opens up the night with a set of her spare and delicate psych-folk gems. 

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
