Ben Chasny / Six Organs of Admittance – Two Day Residency

No Longer Available

Two day residency from Ben Chasny – aka Six Organs of Admittance – playing a band show on the first night and solo on the second, and following on from new album ‘Heaxadic’, which is based upon Chasny's intricately devised Hexadic System for music composition.

Taking as much inspiration from ambient textures and noise squall as it does on the fingerpicked acoustic guitar which has formed the bedrock of Chasny's recorded output, the Six Organs of Admittance sound has expanded to encompass a huge sonic span. Initially starting as a solo endeavour, it has since welcomed a wide array of collaborators both on recordings and in live performances, including the likes of Chris Corsano, Elisa Ambrogio (Magik Markers), and Alex Neilson.

“Ben Chasny, founder and sole continuing member of modern psychedelic legends Six Organs of Admittance, never puts on the same show twice. His performances range from five-person complete percussion heavy freakouts to solo, spare performances. It’s the same on the recorded front, covering a range from delicate acoustic constructions to electric-heavy riff monsters, not to mention his wide range of collaborations.” – Noisey

Ben Chasny

Ben Chasny's primary projects are Six Organs of Admittance (his solo psych folk project) and Comets on Fire (a psychedelic rock band). He made his recording debut in 1996 with his heavy, free rock project Plague Lounge on "The Wicker Image", an LP released conjointly between the New World of Sound and Holy Mountain labels. Holy Mountain went on to become the "home" of many of his releases under the Six Organs Of Admittance moniker. He has also released an album with Hiroyuki Usui under the name August Born. Chasny has lent his talents to other projects such as Badgerlore, Double Leopards, Current 93 and Magik Markers both in live performance and studio albums. More recent musical projects of his include the avant-folk trio Rangda (along with guitarist Richard Bishop and drummer Chris Corsano) and the more melodic and conventional 200 Years with Magik Markers' Elisa Ambrogio.
