Video: Kaki King – Teek

Teek is the innovative new video from American instrumental performer Kaki King.

By Graeme Smith

I’m not sure there is such a genre as acoustic post rock but, if there is, Teek is the only example I’ve come across so far. The piece is a simple construction of strings with Taki joined by Ralph Farris on viola. The music ramps up slowly with layers upon layers until it reaches an explosive climax, just as you might find in the most epic of post rock tracks.

The accompanying intimate video is something to behold. If you’re in the mood for something different today, this might be it. Check out Teek below.
