In partnership with AMP Concerts, composer and musician Kaki King will perform in the galleries at SITE Santa Fe, pairing her piece Modern Yesterdays with Helen Pashgian: Presences in a dramatic and site-specific dialog between music and art.

Kaki King is considered one of the world’s greatest living guitarists, known both for her technical mastery and for her constant quest to push the boundaries of the instrument. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” King has released 9 albums and toured extensively, presenting in such prestigious arts centers as the Kennedy Center, MoMA, LACMA, The Met and Smithsonian Design Museum. She has created music for numerous film and TV soundtracks, including August Rush and Into the Wild, which received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Score. She has performed with symphonies and chamber ensembles, and recorded an album in collaboration with the Porta Girevole Chamber Orchestra commissioned by the Berklee College of Music.

In 2015 King launched The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, a groundbreaking multimedia performance that toured extensively throughout the world, marking her first foray into multimedia and experimental theater. King’s multimedia project, DATA NOT FOUND, redefined her guitar as a tool for storytelling, exploring contemporary issues like A.I., the natural world, “big data” and personal empowerment.

This performance will be part of King’s AMP Residency, a program that provides cutting-edge artists an opportunity to perform, visit schools, and conduct workshops in New Mexico.
