James Tenney - A History of 'Consonance' and  'Dissonance'

James Tenney - A History of 'Consonance' and 'Dissonance'
Excelsior Music Publishing Co. | ISBN: 0935016996 | 1988 | PDF | 117 pages | 41 MB


There is surely nothing in the language of discourse about music that is mote burdened with purely semantic problems than are the terms consonance and dissonance. A comparison of some of the definitions of these words to be found in current dictionaries, harmony textbooks, and books on musical acoustics indicates that there is considerable confusion and disagreement as to their meaning—if indeed there is any meaning still to be attributed to them.

This book discusses consonance and dissonance from antiquity trough the ars antiqua, from ars nova through the seconda practica, from Rameau to the late 20th century.

The work of James Tenney as a composer, theorist, performer, and teacher, is of singular importance in American music of the past four decades. He is by nature a quiet, almost publicity-shy musician, but his musical and theoretical works are steadily becoming widely known, despite the fact that few have been published and only a relatively small number, to this date, are readily available on recordings. Meta + Hodos once had the widest “underground” readership of any treatise of its kind until it became more readily available through Frog Peak in the late 1980s. The drum quartets, For Ann (rising), and a few other works are also familiar, in a wide variety of contexts, to contemporary musicians. He is also known for his groundbreaking work in the development of compositional algorithms. This is the period in his work that is documented on this recording.

As their way of saying "bah-bye!" to a century of creative musical innovation, Sonic Youth launched a double album in 1999—probably their most ambitious project to date—by teaming up with radical geeks Jim O'Rourke, William Winant, Christian Marclay, and Wharton Tiers (plus Kim and Thurston's daughter, Coco Hayley Gordon Moore) to pay homage to a handful of legendary avant-garde composers such as John Cage, James Tenney, Christian Wolff, Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono, George Maciunas, Steve Reich, and on-site helpmates Takehisa Kosugi and Christian Wolff. Even if you're not familiar with Marclay's cut 'n' paste sound art or Reich's repetition theory, these at times wonderful pieces will work their way into your cranium—certainly not your standard Sonic Youth album by any stretch of the imagination. But just as A Thousand Leaves took Sonny Sharrock's Coltrane guitarscapes into pastoral territory, Goodbye 20th Century makes unknowable art, be it Cage's zoning "Six" or Wolff's evil electro-orchestral dry heave "Burdocks", seem atmospheric, natural, and even erotic. The oceanic build to James Tenney's "Having Never Written a Note for Percussion", Gordon Moore's 16-second screech through Yoko Ono's "Voice Piece for Soprano," the Youths pounding and piano plinking hammer at George Maciunas's "Piano Piece #13 (Carpenter's Piece)," or Lee Ranaldo and William Winant's take on Nicolas Slonimsky's short, lovely percussion piece, "Pièce Enfantine," wouldn't sound out of place even to this day.
