Sample text

When we discussed melody, we dealt with single melodies. Now, we discuss music that has more than one melody at one time, creating a denser texture. Our discussion of melody also showed how melodies are often made up of phrases that repeat or contrast with one another. When we view a complete composition, we see how melodies are sometimes repeated and contrasted to give the music a sense of structure that we call form. com/ charltonexperience2e One of the fundamental characteristics of Western music is its reliance on tonality as an organizing element.

Most Western music depends on harmony to help enhance its expressiveness. We have defined interval as the distance between two notes in a melody, but we can also use it to refer to the distance between notes that are sounded together to make harmony. Thus harmony is a composite sound made up of two or more notes of different pitches that are played or sung simultaneously. The smallest harmonic unit is one consisting of two notes, but we usually have three or more notes played or sung together to create harmony.

The simplest chord is the triad. It is made up of three notes that are usually spaced one note apart—do, mi, and sol in the do-re-mi (major) scale, for example. The first note of any scale—in this case, do—is called the tonic note. The triad built on the notes beginning with do is, therefore, called the tonic chord. Tonic chords sound very stable and are traditionally played at the end of a musical composition in order to supply a sense of conclusion to the harmonic progression. Chords can be broken up so that their notes are played one at a time instead of all together.
