The talented Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance recently stopped by the Acoustic Guitar offices to perform three songs in his hypnotic psych-folk style.

Watch Chasny weave an introspective mood with just an acoustic guitar, playing the Six Organs of Admittance songs “Journey Through Sankuan Pass,” “Lisboa,” and “Khidr and the Fountain.”


Chasny recently developed a new system for composing music called the Hexadic System, which matches a set of standard playing cards to notes on a guitar. Look for an album based on this system called Hexadic II, out on Drag City on November 20.
