KAKI KING: The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body / Lisa/Liza – SPACE Gallery – 02/28/15

Who KAKI KING: The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body / Lisa/Liza When Saturday, February 28, 2015 8:30pm – $15 adv/$20 dos – 18+ Where SPACE Gallery (map) 538 Congress St Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other Info”Kaki King’s groundbreaking new work, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body, 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. 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. Luminous visions and unexpected textures are cast onto a signature acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. The guitar gradually evolves, taking on a living, breathing existence of its own.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted. Over her decade-long career, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five extraordinarily diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks (spanning Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild to scoring – and appearing in as guitar-playing hand double – the acclaimed 2007 drama, August Rush), and played to ever-growing audiences on innumerable world tours.

Lisa/Liza, “Maine’s #1 lo-fi folk hypnotist” (according to Owen Ashworth of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone) opens up the night with a set of her spare and delicate psych-folk gems. ”
