RPM Challenge entry for 2014. As an organizing conceit, I wanted each track to use a chord sequence that spelled something. Sitting at a restaurant bar by myself, mulling the possibilities (BADCAFE, CAD, ACE-FADE, ADAGE, AGED BABE, etc.), “D-E-A-D-F-A-C-E” finally occurred to me.
Most of these tracks use that chord sequence, while the last two tracks consist of leftovers from the recording process.
