Saturday, April 7 at 7:30pm the Tower Theatre Foundation presents Kaki King. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself”, the Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist redefines the roll of solo instrumental artist, and presents a brand new way of using her six-string — as a projection screen! In this groundbreaking, multi-media performance, the sounds of the guitar are analyzed by visual software and reflected back as images on her guitar and backdrop. The audience will witness how the guitar perceives itself through images of creation, travel, nature, and abstract art. “The performance is so immersive and grasping,” says King, “it’s really a thrilling experience.” Don’t miss your chance to witness the magic live! Plus, special guest Jacob Miller from Portland will open the evening with his combination of indie, folk, pop, and American roots music.
This performance is presented by the Tower Theatre Foundation and sponsored by Bend Surgery Center with additional support from Central Oregon Radiology, Deschutes Brewery, Oregrown, Hasson Company Realtors, AmeriTitle, and Sally Russell. Tickets are on sale now. Membership, program information and individual and group tickets are available at the box office (835 NW Wall), by phone (541-317-0700) or online (www.towertheatre.org).
