consonant than m. 53. Both measures contain two metrical downbeats, but whereas the downbeat
that conflicts with the groove in m. 46 occurs four eighth-notes before the next groove downbeat,
the downbeat that conflicts with the groove in m. 53 occurs one eighth-note before the next
groove downbeat. The dissonance in m. 53 is stronger because the downbeat attacks are closer in
proximity. In most measures, the level of dissonance is consistent at both the beat and the metric
levels. The increase in dissonance, then, is manifest by both smaller grouping dissonances and
larger metric dissonances. The distinction between beat-level and metric-level dissonances
becomes more significant in later section.
