Update and apology:

I’d only just put the finishing touches on this post when I discovered that I had already mentioned Kaki King on this blog* – and it was this very track, too. I’m recycling posts already! Argh!

As a bonus, and for putting up with my nonsense, here’s Kaki playing a few tracks live on TED.com. In the video, Kaki talks about the concepts of time and infinity, tunes up her guitar, then talks about the curving of the universe, tunes up her guitar a bit more, talks about humungous guitars, tunes up… etc:
