 Dissonant Harmony - A New Principle of Musical and Social Organization | Rudhyar Archival Project | Musical Works and ...
Dissonances are synthetized into harmonic resonances which are relatively consonant on the spiritual plane, i.e., in the subjective consciousness of the hearer.
Dissonant music which can be called "syntonic" is thus a symbol and a part of the true spiritual sacred life whose aim is essentially the calling upon the Self to take possession of the body once the latter has become purified.
Dissonant music is thus seen as being the music of civilization, the music of MAN. As civilization opposes natural instincts, dams natural impulses in order to release power and mental energy, so dissonant music is based on the hindering of the natural flow of overtones, the basis of consonant music.

 Sample Chapter -- Cognitive Dissonance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The magnitude of dissonance between one cognitive element and the remainder of the person's cognitions depends on the number and importance of cognitions that are consonant and dissonant with the one in question.
Self-perception theory (Bem, 1967, 1972) argued that dissonance effects were not the result of motivation to reduce the psychological discomfort produced by cognitive dissonance but were due to a nonmotivational process whereby persons merely inferred their attitudes from their behavior and the circumstances under which the behavior occurred.
Dissonance theorists currently agree that genuine cognitive changes occur in dissonance studies, for example, studies of the induced-compliance paradigm, the free-choice paradigm, and the effort-justification paradigm.

 Third Species, Two Parts (sc3.htm)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This new type of dissonance is fundamentally different from the dissonant passing tone: while the passing tone forms a stepwise connection between two different tones, the neighboring note involves the stepwise elongation of a single tone.
The dissonant neighbor may begin on any of the four beats, but is most appropriate on the first and third quarter.
The decoration is significant because it involves the leap of a third from a dissonant note on the second quarter, postponing its resolution until the fourth quarter.

 Seeger.html
All went well as long as a thoroughly dissonant structure was maintained, but upon the first introduction of consonance, a feeling of disappointment, of defeat, frequently occurred.
In an attempt to alleviate this feeling, 'the conventional...became a thing to be avoided' and dissonant counterpoint was born.
Indeed, Seeger felt that the ability to rhythmically 'dissonant' a single melodic line was an essential prerequisite to the successful writing of dissonant counterpoint and identified a number of practices through which this ideal might be realised.

 Halfbakery: Simple Auditory Clock Using Dissonant Sine Waves
The idea being that you would have a clock where the "hands" were replaced by 3 sinewave oscillators - The pitches of the sinewave oscillators would rise and fall according to various cycles - one on a 60-second cycle, one on a 60-minute cycle, and one on a 24 hour cycle.
The enharmonic pulses created by the dissonance between tones could be used as a way to count how many minutes before or after the hour.
An LFO on the amplitude of all 3 waves (with a quick peak and a long, shallow trough) could be set to make the clock "chime" at the hours or half hours if you didn't want it to sound constantly.

 iBreatheMusic Forums - Consonant and Dissonant Intervals
Dissonance and consonance are terms that were coined by the modal music theorists.
I'm just pointing out that there are even modern references that state that the P4 as an interval by itself is dissonant, and that as a member of a chord, particularly as a 1st inversion, the P4 is then considered consonant.
The original meaning of dissonance only meant that it was unstable, needed to resolve or otherwise something that could not indicate a finality.

When two tones of similar frequency are played at the same time, such as a half step chord, the sound perceived is typically described as unpleasant and wobbly. This phenomenon, called the beat phenomenon, can be described in terms of physics, as well as how it is perceived by the ear and mind.
Consonance and dissonance are by definition subjective, but music from all cultures indicates that people prefer certain intervals, such as the octave and the fifth. The Physics of Beats The superposition of two pure tones of equal amplitudes but different frequencies may be illustrated mathematically.

The quartet's "dissonant" opening bars sound to modern audiences like something poignant and somber, which is the treatment the players of the FAQ gave it.

His self-affirmation as a Jew in juxtaposition with his satirical use of anti-Semitic stereotypes still provokes unease in both republican France and institutional Judaism.
In Albert Cohen: Dissonant Voices, the first English-language study of this profound and profoundly misunderstood writer, Jack I. Abecassis traces the recurrent themes of Cohen’s works.
Abecassis argues that Cohen should not be read exclusively through the prism of European literature (Stendhal, Tolstoy, Proust), but rather as the retelling—inverting and ultimately exhausting, in the form of submerged plots—of the Biblical romances of Joseph and Esther.
