    The way consonance and dissonance are treated is central to the way the whole of Western Music works and is the first concept to understand in the study of voice leading. It works on the assumption that consonant sounds are combinations of notes (intervals) that sound pleasant or melodious together whereas dissonant intervals sound harsh or. The concepts of consonance and dissonance broadly understood can provide structural models for creators of visual music. The application of words such as ‘harmony’ across both music and visual arts indicates potential correspondences not just between sensory elements such as pitch and colour but also with the manipulation of tension and resolution, anticipation and stability in visual music.

      To Western ears, the difference between consonance and dissonance is stark, and we greatly prefer the former to the latter. Since the ancient Greeks, scholars have wondered why. Ernst Krenek's classification, from Studies in Counterpoint(), of a triad's overall consonance or dissonance through the consonance or dissonance of the three intervals contained within (Schuijer , p. )Play (helpinfo).

      It has often been suggested that humans have innate preferences for consonance over dissonance, leading some to conclude that music in which dissonance features prominently is . This book, written in the form of a series of dialogues between the Schumannian characters Florestan and Eusebius, proposes a theory of metrical conflict that rigorously develops the metaphorical application of the concepts of consonance and dissonance to metrical phenomena. An introductory chapter traces the history of this metaphor from its origins in the early 19th century through to the.

Despite their fundamental importance to music theory, consonance and dissonance are surprisingly slippery concepts. They cannot unequivocally be identified as acoustical, aesthetic, physiological, psychological, or cultural-historical.

This chapter examines a wide range of approaches to consonance/dissonance, focusing on four debates: the age-old sensus/ratio discussion, contrapuntal. In music, consonance and dissonance are categorizations of simultaneous or successive sounds.

Within the Western tradition, consonance is typically associated with sweetness, pleasantness, and acceptability; dissonance is associated with harshness, unpleasantness, or unacceptability although this depends also on familiarity and musical expertise (Lahdelma and Eerola ). The notions of consonance and dissonance are probably one of the most debated question in music theory and acoustics (see for example what Hindemith said: “The two concepts have never been completely explained, and for a thousand years the definitions have varied“).

These notions have a long history, dating back to the time of Greek philosophers. Consonance and dissonance are subjective qualities of relationship that we assign to music intervals. A quick review of intervals might be helpful if you're approaching the subject for the first time.

A dissonant interval can be described as being "unstable" or demanding treatment by resolving to a consonant interval. A consonant interval is one that is stable and does not demand treatment.

In simplest terms, the sound waves of consonant notes "fit" together much better than the sound waves of dissonant notes. For example, if two notes are an octave apart, there will be exactly two waves of one note for every one wave of the other note.
