Virtuoso Guitarist Kaki King to Perform MODERN YESTERDAYS, A Multi-Media Performance, At The Morris Museum

Guitar virtuoso and multi-media artist, Kaki King will perform works from her most recent album, Modern Yesterdays in a performance that includes reactive projection design on Friday, September 30. Known both for her technical mastery and for her constant quest to push the boundaries of the instrument, she has released nine albums and toured extensively, performing in famous and prestigious arts centers such as the Kennedy Center, MoMA, LACMA, The Met, and Smithsonian Design Museum.

She has composed music for numerous film and TV soundtracks, including "August Rush" and "Into the Wild", for which she received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Score. She has performed with symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles as well as recorded an album in collaboration with the Porta Girevole Chamber Orchestra commissioned by the Berklee College of Music. She continues to break down and redefine the role of solo instrumentalist though virtuoso technique, unbelievable imagination, and relentless humanity.

Her signature multi-media performance, both provocative and spiritually moving, uses projection mapping to bend the guitar as a tool that can shape both music and video content at will via her Ovation Adamas Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar, customized specifically for her multimedia performance.

Capturing the museum's mission she will use art, sound, and motion in a stunning and often improvised live display of music and video. Tickets are $30.00, $25.00 for Museum Members and can be purchased at: morrismuseum.org/kakiking
