Chord – “Progression” – [Important Records]
Train Wreck 12/13/2011 12-inch, A Library
Chord “Progression” is a CD/Double LP combination piece that is about chord progressions.?? This is the second half of the 6 chords that are showcased on this album.The first 6 are on the CD and it is the intention of the artists that the CD and LPs be played one after the other as one entire album.Each member plays only one note of the chord that is the song title.Dm11 (pelagic) drones on for almost 35 minuets but sadly is split between side 2 and side 3.With such a well-created dronescape it is hard to tell that they are using only a single chord for each song.If that wasn’t enough, they stray from the drone on G6 (codal) and play a song where the chord isn’t played continuously. Thismakes it hard to tell that only one chord is being used, as there are beats and rhythms to it.This song is a testament to the artistry of Chord and how imaginative they are.
