I don’t know about you but harmony in music always gets me. I guess one could say I am a sucker for it.
When musicians play what they refer to as “the hook” or “the chorus” it typically has harmony involved – or the build up of slightly off sounds followed by the release of a harmonized passage – it always attracts me. I wonder why?
Is harmony in music the same as agreement between people? After all, in each case, harmony of two creates a third component that resonates with the first two.
Disagreement between people and non-harmonious sounds also have a third component but the resonance is unwelcome.
I think music and its harmonies are reflections of our everyday lives and challenges to find agreement and harmonies within our lives.
High-end audio is all about reproducing those harmonies in perfect form so we can enjoy them even more.
