The Per­cus­sivist GREAT­EST ACHIEVE­MENTS

King’s in­no­va­tive gui­tar-as-per­cus­sion style got the jump on a whole acous­tic move­ment, and can be di­rectly cred­ited for a large chunk of the cur­rent crop of gui­tarists ex­plor­ing the fringes of what an acous­tic gui­tar can do.

Over­the course of her ca­reer, she has ex­panded her style well be­yond that for which she orig­i­nally found fame, and has in­cor­po­rated in­trigu­ing high-tech vi­su­als into her work. WHERE TO START Play­ing With Pink Noise A great in­tro­duc­tion to King’s ex­plo­sive style. BOSS LEVEL The Neck Is The Bridge To The Body

A mul­ti­me­dia pre­sen­ta­tion in­volv­ing images pro­jected on to her gui­tar while King plays vir­tu­osic tex­tures and melodies.
