Thadaa! (Drum roll)
The GEC Music Hub is back in action, with this 2nd article !
This time, let’s try to understand the concept of CONSONANCE & DISSONANCE in music. Well, sounds overwhelming, doesn’t it?.. But trust me, it isn’t. 😛
CONSONANCE embodies the sweetness of a tone whereas DISSONANCE, the “beauty lies in imperfections” aspect.
This article primarily focuses on the western 12 tone scale (a.k.a equitempered scale).
The equal tempered scale consists of 12 notes within an octave.
Now, imagine a rectangle divided equally into 12 parts; each of the 12 parts represents one musical note. Each note corresponds to a frequency. This implies that if n is the first note, then n+n is the second note and so on.
Consider the C major scale (read article 1):
C D E F G A B C
In relation to C, the consonant tones are F and G.
