After watching Porcupine Tree by Led Lemos as a class, we
where challenged to find our favorite harmony and then
create our own.
My favorite harmony :
My favored harmony is in Queens: Bohemian Rap City when there is a 4 way harmony in measures 3 and 4.
Harmony composition terms:
Drone: a single non changing tone to sing over
Movable Drone: a drone that follows the melody.
Harmonics: hidden notes or frequencies used to make harmonies.
Triad: 3 notes put together to make a chord.( comes from harmonics of single note)
Sharps: moving up one step
Flats: moving down one step
Major Trade: 12 chords that write happy music.
Minor Trade: 12 chords that write sad music.
Polyphony: many notes correlating into chords ( means many voices).
Chord progression: a sequence of chords that make a song.
What I learned:
Harmony is the key to our emotions and in a way a gate way
to another world.
