Event: Sunday, August 23rd, 2015 at 4pm at Pegasus Book Exchange
We're very pleased to announce that Ben Chasny, renowned psychedelic folk and rock guitarist, will be speaking at Pegasus about his new book and "Hexadic" card deck.
Ben is best known for his psych folk project Six Organs Of Admittance, whose early albums were formative of the so-called New Weird America movement of the late 2000's, but his noise rock project Comets On Fire is superb in very different ways.
The Hexadic system is an imaginative compositional strategy or game based on the philosophical concepts of Gaston Bachelard, the organizational schemes of medieval logician Raymond Llul, and the occultist Cornelius Agrippa.
Ben's well-reviewed album Hexadic under the Six Organs moniker was composed using the system and is available at Easy Street, and a limited number of copies of the book and card deck will be available at Pegasus during his visit. More info about his Hexadic project can be found here:
