Introducing a new approach to playing and composing music. It doesn’t require the use of a computer or an internet hookup; all that the interested player will need is a guitar, a copy of The Hexadic System book—and a regular deck of playing cards. Earlier this year, BEN CHASNY’s band SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE used the System to compose, arrange and play the Hexadic album—but The Hexadic System is not simply a manual; it is a scholarly work that approaches the science of music composition using algorithmic patterns, chance operations and relevant philosophical and occult treatises from history. Ben’s desire to find new ways to make music is part of a deep commitment to his mindset as a musician; seeking surprise and transcendence, to make something new while touching the root of musical inspiration that has existed for thousands of years. 4.5” x 7”, 115-page paperback book.
