With Hexadic II, Six Organs of Admittance's second endeavor into the world of the Hexadic System, Ben Chasny's deftly maddened acoustic guitar playing hits our ears after what feels like a kind of forever. What may signify to some ears as folk music is caught in an equally compelling undertow of powerful subterranean energy. Ghostly vocals of divergent timbres sing over the ﬂuid interplay of guitars, harmonium, violin - and pure space, as the reverberant room around the sounds plays as much a part in the experience as the music.
And now, as the beautiful, well-manicured East Coast scenery succumbs to Fall's dying embers, rejoice, New Englanders! The owls are not what they seem, and Six Organs of Admittance will perform a special, one off performance at the famed Dream Away Lodge in Beckett, Massachusetts. Far from the beaten path, the Dream Away Lodge offers the perfect cloistered environment that fosters a transcendent listening sessions. But, beware, evil lurks in the woods....
As ever, Professor Chasny has a head-full of ideas that are driving him; and with this performance in such a strange and intimate space it's sure to provoke a once in a lifetime encounter!
11/1/15 @ The Dream Away Lodge in Becket, MA
