“I’ve never seen anything like it… a sumptuous feast for the senses, a dizzying display of sound and vision by a guitarist already renowned for her innovation… I repeat: Do not miss this.” – Boston Globe
“It’s a beautiful thing when two entirely different art forms fit so well together that the boundaries between vision and sound, hand and ear, line and note, begin to blur. We’re feeling that particular kind of synesthesia…”Huffington Post
“Kaki King is a different kind of hero: Largely eschewing aural pyrotechnics, she’s widened the interpretive range of the guitar through exploration and collaboration… [now] she transforms her very ax into a projection screen.”TimeOut
“The music isn’t jazz but more an assault of feedback-laden psychedelia that’s part Mahavishnu Orchestra, part Sonic Youth, and of course part Hendrix during his most lyrical “Waterfall” moments.” — Chicago Reader
Calling Kaki King a guitarist does her a disservice. The post-rock composer and musician is a consummate performance artist who does things to her instrument most self-identified guitarists could never even imagine, much less replicate.”
Washington City Paper

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful. Kaki King, through technique, insatiable imagination and boundless humanity, brings her visionary best on tour. In an innovative multi-media experience, King uses projection to present the guitar as a blank canvas for her musical imagination. Luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins are cast onto an Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for the production.
Produced in collaboration with Glowing Pictures (best known for their work with artists such as Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio), the tour presents King’s groundbreaking work, The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, in it’s intended format.
For those in the NYC area, Kaki will be playing a special show at Ménage à Trois Radio’s 100th Episode Anniversary Party. And be sure to catch King’s immersive vision of a live show in a city near you on her upcoming national tour!
