Kaki King with Kip Jones and StoLyette – at the Cedar

Kaki King
Date: 
Thursday, February 12, 2015 - 7:30pm

KFAI is proud to sponsor Kaki King at the Cedar Cultural Center on Thursday, February 12.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer will be performing her groundbreaking new work, “The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body,” which 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.

The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body, which debuted at Brooklyn’s acclaimed BRIC Theater in March, now comes to The Cedar as part of an extensive tour.

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.

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.

Violinist Kip Jones of progressive string quartet Ethel will join Kaki for several of the pieces.

Russian art rock duo StoLyette opens.
