and i didn't want to look through 216 pages of "name that chord" or whatever, only not to find it. it's simple and is used in a lot of mathcore like daughters, but i've never seen a name for it. it looks like

|---|
|-9-|
|---|
|-7-|
|---|
|---|


it's kind of like an octave chord except the high note is a half step down.

its not a chord, its simply a harmonic major 7th....or an inverted harmonic minor 2nd, depending on how you look at it. minor seconds are very dissonant and mathcore does use em a lot.

You can think of it more like a diad than a chord. The A is the root and the higher G# is a major 7th (if the higher pitched note was one semitone lower than the root I believe it would be considered a minor 2nd... not 100% on that one).

They are one chromatic semitone apart which, when played together, sound like that pulling at each other and creates a lot of dissonance.

the proper music term for 2 notes played simultaneously is a diad, 3 or more notes is a chord. just an fyi for the folks who didnt know.

It's not actually a chord, as chords have to have at least three notes, instead it is an interval - a major 7th.

It's a dyad actually.

So you're saying that it's not an interval?

A "dyad" isn't even a correct musical term. It is a major 7th interval.
