Killick

Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: December 2, 1972    

Killick Hinds is an improvising guitarist, composer, and writer living in Athens, Georgia. He plays a variety of unusual stringed instruments with a comprehensive approach to genres known and as-yet-unlabeled. Reinvention has been the constant throughout his creative output. He has toured extensively as a solo performer, and is an active organizer and promoter of lesser-heard music. He ran the record label Solponticello for 10 years, and now runs H(i)nds(i)ght for his digital, vinyl, and written works. Pop-culture mashups and ancient and obscure forms infuse his music; his song titles are integral to the works they embody: they result from free association without censorship, refined and edited until they capture the tenor of a given piece of music…even if the reference remains elusive. Killick has deeply rooted classical technique as a player, but broadens the possibilities in his music by stretching and contracting phrases temporally, conceptually, dynamically, and stylistically. The effect more closely resembles speech patterns and emotionally-drawn architecture than it does conventional Western music. Despite its eclectic nature, the music is surprisingly familiar and accessible to audiences of all ages and levels of musical involvement....
