  1. I watched a video talking about becoming immune to dissonance, and it's something I can easily identified with. Here there are only two chords / scales: Cmaj and Dbmaj. But always superimposed. When Db is under C, intervals are natural 7 and the sound is softer. When C is under Db, it's heavier because the b9 intervals. But nothing sounds bad to me. Also, there is a part where everything is "inverted". INMUNE - SCORE.pdf
  2. On a simple harmony, the piano is treated with the concept of linear harmony, and a melody added. Trying to use all these in particular styles. Some notes might seem odd (Ab on B chord) but it's a matter of coherency to keep the intervals in the dissonances. #4 tango - SCORE.pdf
  3. Hey everyone I'm a little confused at to what this very simple dissonance is, or it would even considered "acceptable" dissonance in traditional harmony. At first I thought maybe it's pedal point, but then I read that a pedal point tone eventually becomes consonant again before moving away, rather than leaping to a different tone while it's still in its dissonance phase. So if I start with something simple like this, where there's a passing tone in the bass, and the top voice leaps to a new consonant tone: And then I decorate the bass tone by arpeggiating through chords, the second of of which creates dissonance with the melody: Would the top voice, in this case, be considered a pedal tone, even though it doesn't resolve into itself and essentially leaps from a dissonance? Thanks for your time.
  4. I pose this not as a question, but as the title to an article I recently finished on the topic that might be of interest to people here. I take a look at the instrumentation and musical ideas of cinema horror music and break them down. I'd be interested in any additional thoughts people have on the topic. Cheers!

  5. So, had an interesting event to witness in the shoutbox this evening. One member made the statement that there is either Tonality or Dissonance. So, I give this to you -oh great forum peoples: Do you believe that music is either 'tonality or dissonance'? If so, why?
