Kaki King presents “A Neck Is A Bridge To The Body,” a live visual musical production, live at the Masonic Lodge in Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Los Angeles, CA. 4/14/2015.
In 2014, Kaki collaborated with the visual experience company Glowing Pictures to construct an innovative, immersive multi-media production in which the guitar is used as a projection screen to tell a story. The hour-long production, entitled The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, places the focus on the guitar itself, the Instrument serving as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other ever presented.
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. Protections of genesis and death, unexpected textures and skins, are cast onto a Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for the production.
“The Guitar is a shape-shifter,” King says, “something that plays all types of music and really fills all kinds of roles. It’s not always the six-string guitar that we all know and love. I’ve been playing guitar for more than 30 years. It’s who I am and if anything, this project has made me even more familiar with it.”
