“ Of course I have used dissonance in my time, but there has been too much dissonance. Bach used dissonance as good salt for his music. Others applied pepper, seasoned the dishes more and more highly, till all healthy appetites were sick and until the music was nothing but pepper.” – Prokofiev
Dissonance by definition is:
[n] disagreeable sounds
[n] the auditory experience of sound that lacks musical quality; sound that is a disagreeable auditory experience; “modern music is just noise to me”
[n] a conflict of people’s opinions or actions or characters
Dissonance then…may be regarded as a prerequisite to indeed hearing. At the posit, it may sound like noise to some; but the more one distances themselves from the apparent “noise”…precisely then is when they may hear the undeniable sound.
Truth is likened to dissonance in the same tone. One may harken it, one may behold it, one may “know” it and devour it. But it is not until they separate themselves from the “noise” does the actual truth reveal itself.
What one hears is not in the least what is close to actuality.
To listen is not to hear. To know truth and to live truth are two very separate entities.
Discerning the disquietude from the veracity yields more than one can easily devise.
