Chord is about multiple sonorities achieved through the use of extended flute techniques and arranged into patterns which retrograde at the work's midpoint. The piece was inspired by shakuhachi music as well as the musicianship and virtuosity of Robert Dick who gave the work its first performance in New Haven, Connecticut during the spring of 1977. I was very much intrigued by the idea of creating "textures" with a single instrument - some pure, others noisy - some thin (a single tone) - others thick (a sonority with multiple tones, a chord.)
