listening to progressive
rock, a progasm can be reached when
you go very
deep into the music and that you let it take control over you. This instrumental trance can be called
a progasm, especially when
you actually wet your pants doing it. One of the main particularities of the progasm is that it is often accompanied
by frenetic air-guitar playing, as well as air-keyboard, air-drum, air-bass, air-flute or even air-accordion.
Why is the progasm only related to ''progressive
music often contains extended solos and very
complex interplay between many kinds of instruments, some of them
being pretty unusual. A song which is constituted of several tempo
changes, unusual time signatures, incredibly fast arpeggios, absolutely original synth sounds, dissonant chords, a church
organ interlude and out-of-this-world vocal harmonies has more chance
blow your mind than a standard 3-minute pop song. Real progheads can actually get sexually excited when
hearing a fully
accomplished prog song.
