Musical Musings

Dissonance, we’re told, followed by harmonic resolution, heightens emotions, takes us beyond the ordinary.

One chord away from our comfort zones, straining our understanding, challenging our deepest beliefs.

Every piece worth keeping keels on an edge of unease, hiding a slip of protest between the lines, so we may join the refrain.

    1. I was listening to a classical station through my Alexa a couple of days ago while making my bed. A moment of dissonance caught my ear and I held my breath until the resolution. It just made me think. I’m no accomplished musician–played saxophone, usually tenor, through high school, but I always enjoy listening for those moments of intense discomfort within the score. I’m weird like that.
