2. What are Consonance and Dissonance?
- In music, the relationship between two tones (an interval) is either consonant or dissonant.
- Like ligands binding with cell receptors, they refer to the differing levels of compatibility between any two tones.
When an interval is consonant, it has a pleasant,
“finished” sounding quality.
When an interval is dissonant, it sounds uglier,
as though it needs to be “resolved” to something
