“linear harmonic progression” is a term taken from Schenkerian analysis. Here, the linearity refers to the extremely straightforward nature of the determination of the pianists actions. However, the sonic interest arises from the impossibility of carrying out these instructions flawlessly; from the imperfection of the pianists physicality in contrast to the schematic nature of the instrument.
