Kaki King visited the KSUT studios on May 7, 2019, ahead of her show in Durango. She brought her projection-mapped guitar. Projection mapping is a technology that allows a specific object such as a music instrument to be illuminated during a performance.

King explained how she uses the technology as part of her shows in support of her 2015 album The Neck is a Bridge to the Body.

In addition to a fun and freewheeling conversation with KSUT's Tami Graham, King also played a few pieces.


  • Trying to Speak II
  • Anthropomorph
  • Streetlight in the Egg

Kaki King: Guitar

Interviewer: Tami Graham
Recording engineer: Ken Brott
Post-production engineer: Mark Duggan

A technical note: KSUT Sessions were initially mixed for live broadcast and 'captured' by recording equipment. Post-production sometimes reveals deficiencies unique to the recording. Efforts were taken to reduce such deficiencies, but some are still audible.
