Ben Chasny at The Pegasus Book Exchange

The Pegasus Book Exchange will be hosting their first in-store event in 31+ years this Sunday. They will have Ben Chasny (musician from Comets on Fire and Six Organs of Admittance) visiting the store on August 23rd at 4pm. He will be discussing The Hexadic System, his spring 2015 released book which details a new way of composing music using a simple deck of playing cards as a tool.

Ben used his Hexadic System to write and record the latest release from Six Organs of Admittance, also entitled “Hexadic” (released February 2015 on Drag City). Last year in a blog post, Ben talked more about this novel approach to composing, how he worked to develop it over many years, and how it’s helped to shape his expression and voice as a musician.

To learn more about this unique system and to hear Ben describe it in his own words, please join The Pegasus Book Exchange for this special in-store event. The event is free to the public. There will be copies of the book for sale as well.
