David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Harmony and Disharmony (Counterpoint) : one can experience an aligning and comforting type of sound using harmony.

When disharmonious musical sounds are used one can feel an awkward, unusual or unpredictable feeling.

Harmony and Disharmony are essentially the arranging of different sounds together in a chosen or desired way by the songwriter, to create an intended effect within the listener.
