Here’s Kaki King teaching us how to play the fingering pattern from the song “Trying to Speak Parts 1 & 2.” It’s a cut from her brand new album The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, the soundtrack to her multimedia show by the same name. Somehow when the incomparable Kaki King shares the trick to this riff she makes it look easy. But then watch her crank it full speed and holy moly!
Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Kaki King’s 'The Neck is a Bridge to the Body,' a multimedia, guitar-based show that was truly unique. Here I had the chance to sit down with this energetic and wonderful artist to talk about “The Neck is a Bridge to the Body” and more. The soundtrack to this show just went on sale March 3 as well! Check out all three parts of our exclusive interview to get the full scoop.
We all have to start somewhere. From that first secondhand guitar to superstar…it doesn’t happen overnight. Here some great players share the stories of their humble beginnings and their musical influences.
More than a concert of King’s incredible new music, her innovative spirit wows again as she experiments with projection technology. Collaborating with Glowing Pictures to turn an all-white guitar of plastic resin into a sensory projector, she gives the instrument a life-like dimension you shouldn’t miss. The guitar’s entire surface is like a video monitor.
When you sit down to listen to Kaki King’s new release, Glow, you’ll be struck by the pristine recording quality, the crystal-clear tone, the acoustic separation and the compositions that stem from masterful and moving arpeggiations. But it’s when you see King play live that you experience her true genius.
