Kaki King

Wed., May 6, 7-10 p.m.
phone 313-576-5111
tickets@dso.org

This groundbreaking multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth. Luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto an Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. The Guitar gradually evolves, taking on a living, breathing existence of its own. Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, "The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body" is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. $15

Author & Punisher

Wed., May 6, 8 p.m.-2 a.m.

smallsbardetroit@gmail.com

Described most succinctly as “industrial doom,” this one-man project utilizes primarily custom designed and fabricated machines and speakers. From Shone’s background and current position as a mechanical engineer, his designs and devices draw heavily on aspects of industrial automation and robotics with also a focus upon the eroticism of interaction with machine. The machines are designed to require significant force from the performer, aligning he/she with the plodding doom-influenced sounds that are created. Author & Punisher attracts a diverse audience of fans and admirers, from electronic music fans all the way to Phil Anselmo from Pantera. $7 ADV - $10 DOS
