Consonance and Dissonance
Mike de Sousa © 2018
I ponder harmony in this work
Harmony: something experienced as being together. Harmony may be consonant (agreeable) or dissonant.
Dissonance: the discomfort or clash of two or more ideas, materials, or frequencies of light or sound.
When I place two elements close in time or place, for example two colours, two sounds, or two words, a vibration arises between them. We feel this on a scale from beautiful to ugly.
