Essay about Progressive Rock
Contemplation about "Progressive Rock"
(Arne Schäfer, August 1996)
I had written the present essay about progressive rock in German langiage from the viewpoint of an artist in spring 1997. While reworking the versus X and Apogee Websites in spring 2017, I finally translated it to english, so more of you can share my ideas. If anyone likes to discuss the various aspects of Prog music with me, you are always welcome to send me an e-mail.
These are the contents of the essay:Prologue
The Mysticism of Long Tracks
The Listeners of Progressive Rock
Lyrics of Progressive Rock
The Role of Sound in Progressive Rock
The Composition in Progressive Rock
The Dilemma of the ongoing Progression
