This grouping analysis yields the CBAP visual shown in Example 5.8. As with mm. 46-
57, this section represents a general trajectory from more consonant to more dissonant at both the
beat and the metric levels. The CDAP visual is shown in Example 5.9, and the table of relative
consonance and dissonance is shown in Example 5.10. Although m. 82 is one of the more
consonant metric-level measures, the dissonance at the beat level is quite intense. Thus, the
trajectory from relative consonance to dissonance endures despite the discrepancy between the
The next section under consideration shows that relative beat-level and metric-level
dissonances can conflict with one another to a greater extent, and the result is a more
omnipresent dissonance throughout the passage rather than an increase in dissonance throughout
Here’s what’s next.
