Kaki King: The Neck is a Bridge to the Body

An Innovative Multimedia Performance

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body is Kaki King at her visionary best.

Experience this ground-breaking new multi-media performance using projection mapping to present the guitar as a metaphysical blank slate in a creation myth unlike any other. 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 this production. The projections harmonise with King’s mesmerising melodies and on-stage energy.

Don’t miss this inimitable performer deconstruct and redefine the role of a solo instrumental artist through virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination and boundless humanity.

Reviews

“... the duo’s collaborative music video for King’s “Anthropomorph” is a harmonious conversation between two artists who speak a similar language, although they work in different disciplines.”

The Creators Project

“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

"bare, powerful, and propulsive."

KUTX Austin

“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

“In her near-13-year career that’s seen six studio albums and a Golden-Globe nomination for best original score, King has earned critical acclaim for the way she combines unusual tunings, complex fingerstyle picking, and slap bass techniques to create soundscapes that range from instrumental acoustic work to high-voltage rock songs. Now, she’s using her guitar in an entirely new way: as a projection screen."
