The Underpinnings of Polychordal Dissonance and Consonance.

Written by Andrew Hanna


Inrepparttar last article, Polychords andrepparttar 144203 Jazz Improviser, it was discussed how one can learn and apply polychords to an improvisation. Continuing withrepparttar 144204 last article,repparttar 144205 understanding of polychordal consonance and dissonance will be explored. As many music students may remember from their studies of basic tertian harmony,repparttar 144206 common pattern for harmonic movement followsrepparttar 144207 following formula: IV-V7-I. A simple analysis of this formula would conclude thatrepparttar 144208 IV chord announcesrepparttar 144209 dominant chord, which in this case producesrepparttar 144210 tension, and this tension is then resolve torepparttar 144211 I chord. As this analysis has shown, polychords and other harmonic concepts operate under similar rules. Within this article, there will be two opposing viewpoints presented concerning polychordal dissonance/consonance.

Throughout this discussion of polychordal dissonance and consonance,repparttar 144212 use of triads will be used in all examples. The use of triads in this discussion makes it easier forrepparttar 144213 novice student to grasp polychordal dissonance/consonance. When one begins to apply this idea to tertian harmony that is larger in scope than triads (i.e. seventh chords and larger),repparttar 144214 larger harmonies tend to function differently regarding dissonance and consonance. For this discussion of polychordal dissonance/consonance to continue, one needs to draw a circle of fourths where "C" is would be at twelve o’clock and "F#" is at 6 o’clock. After completing this circle, one then needs to numberrepparttar 144215 tonal centers, starting with "C" in a clockwise fashion. For example: C is I, G is II, D is III, and continue to number in like fashion.

One ofrepparttar 144216 pioneering principles that Vincent Persichetti set forth in his Twenty-Century Harmony, was that if one were to continue aroundrepparttar 144217 circle, as described above,repparttar 144218 polychords will become more dissonant. In contrast to Persichetti’s principle of polychordal dissonance, another view on polychordal dissonance is that if one were to maintainrepparttar 144219 above mentioned circle of fifths, but unlikerepparttar 144220 previous example, one needs to renumberrepparttar 144221 chordal units. If one were to start will C and label it "I" and continue this process clockwise until they stopped at F#, one then should have labeled F# as "VII." If one were to start at "C" again and continue labelingrepparttar 144222 chordal units in a counter-clockwise fashion, one should end with an identical numerical pattern as previously described.
