Six Organs of Admittance is the primary musical project of guitarist Ben Chasny. Chasny's music is largely guitar-based and is often considered new folk, however it includes obvious influences, marked by the use of drones, chimes, and eclectic percussive elements.
Six Organs of Admittance is such a singular experience that it is sometimes easy to forget that Ben was the lead guitarist in Comets On Fire, as well as a songwriter and guitarist for Current 93’s Black Ships Ate The Sky album and half of the pan-Pacific psych-folk duo, August Born. But clearly, Chasny knows heavy, having grown through times of heavy and times of light. And in answer to the question what’s heavier, a pound of rock or a pound of feathers, Six Organs of Admittance has devised this for Luminous Night: a pound of rock covered with a pound of feathers — twice as heavy, but feathery light to the human eye.
