2012 release. Chord, previously released on Neurot Recordings and Important Records, are a drone collective based in Chicago, IL, featuring members of Pelican, X-Bax, and Sacred Cities, who explore the minutiae of single-chord compositions. On this release, they approach the G-major 7 chord over the two sides of an LP with radically different styles. "Stasis" (one approach), and "Kinesis" (and the other). "Kinesis" also features Pat Samson, the former drummer for Chicago noise rockers US Maple, and is the first time Chord have recorded with a drummer. About Gmaj7: This G-rooted non-dominant seventh chord presents itself as a major/major seventh consisting of root (G), major third (B), perfect fifth (D), and major seventh (F#). The appearance of movement is created here by emphasizing different dyads present in various voicings of the chord, yet the chord itself is always used harmonically rather than melodically. Gmaj7 was arranged and performed by Kyle Benjamin, Phil Dole, Jason Hoffman, Sean McCarthym, and Trevor Shelley-de Brauw. Drums on "Kinesis" by Patrick Samson. It was recorded and mixed by Greg Norman at Studio Greg Studios, and mastered by Carl Saff. The LP is limited to a run of 300 copies and packaged in a deluxe screen printed cover designed by Delicious Design League and printed by Heavy Rock Printing.
