Hey there, would you qualify that track as prog rock? Click this link to listen to it.

Or as art rock or something else, what do you think?

Not sure what it is. The piano sounds a bit out of tune.  I suppose you could call it prog. Do you know who it's by?

Yes I know and various sites differently classify the band. I'll mention its name later, I don't want to influence your judgment.

Prog, sure. Sounds a lot like Pulsar to me. Sounds like a practice session. Like they didn't bother tuning. Sounds like it was recorded on low-end reel-to-reel equipment in 1974. Unfinished, but with some overdubs. I like it.

By the way, playing the file took some fenagling, so it might not get the attention it deserves.

"Sounds a lot like Pulsar to me."

Haha really spot-on remark, because it is by a French band (not Pulsar though)!

"Sounds like a practice session. Like they didn't bother tuning."
Yeah low production values

Sounds prog, or at least it has prog tendencies, but it sounds quite bad and off key, as it's been mentioned before.

So the general verdict is that it's prog. The track in question is called Triggers by Orosgone, 70s French band. I like both this track and the rather unrecognized French prog rock, its singular style despite the occasional cheesy production. Singular no doubt and no wonder Triggers reminded stegor of Pulsar.

Quibbles about the recording quality aside, that was a very pleasant proggy instrumental.

The piano melody reminded me of Ken Hensley's playing on Paradise/The Spell, right before and after the slide guitar solo.

The piano isn't out of tune (no pianist would ever record with an instrument that off); the recording is severely warped which gives it that undulating coffee can sound.

Is it prog?   Well it would have to be rock first, which it is just barely, and progressive, which it also is.   So technically the answer would have to be yes.
