Hey everyone. I wanted to take a minute today to share something a little different with you. This blog is full of information about tours, music news and other related material. Today I would like for you to check out this short TED performance by Kaki King. I came across this while stumbling Guitar and was taken very quickly by it. She opens her piece with a very interesting quote,

[blockquote]We don’t really have a place in the universe, as far as on a timeline. But nothing else does either. Therefore every moment really is the most important moment that’s ever happened, including this moment right now.[/blockquote]

I found this to be an incredibly interesting way to open her performance. Her playing is beautiful and very diverse and her personality seems to follow suit. It’s obvious she’s studied hard along side her mentor, Preston Reed. Some have said that a musicians philosophy is represented through their music. I do believe this is true with Ms. king. Wouldn’t you? The almost hypnotic blend of percussion, hybrid picking, finger picking and tapping and arpeggios… I almost lose myself in between each song.

I’m curious, what are your thoughts? Either about her philosophy  technique or musicianship. It doesn’t really matter, I’m just curious what comes to mind.

You can find the performance on TEd, here
