Hexadic System Workshop

INFO
Saturday, February 20 2016
1:00PM
 
 

Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance will demonstrate the basic principles and methods of his Hexadic System,anentirely original music-composition system that utilizes playing cards to break guitarists out of habitual approaches and into unfamiliar tonal worlds. Participants will learn unique composing techniques, work on their own original pieces, and engage in the playful game-elements of the system. The workshop is geared toward guitarists, but open to all musicians. Instruments are not needed. It is free of charge, but RSVP is required, as space is limited. Please do so here

Chasny has recorded two volumes of Hexadic records and published an accompanying book, which delves deeply into the system’s intention to provoke the unconscious and spring past the strictures of the conscious mind. Read more about the book and system below:

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
