Lesson 17 – Harmony

Two or more notes playing simultaneously to create a chord is harmony. When harmony is used to create a series of chords, that’s called a chord progression or harmonic progression. Harmony does a whole lot of the work for us as producers of hip hop when it comes to creating a song’s overall feel and vibe. Certain harmonies create a feeling of wholeness, rightness, even completeness, while others evoke unease, indecision, trepidation, heartache or loss.

Harmonics and chord progressions can lead the listener on a sonic quest, evoke feelings of nostalgia, or set the background for a breakout vocal performance. In this course we’ll get into how you can use harmonics and chord progressions to create tracks which move, inspire, empathize, awe, and even astound.

Be able to identify consonance and dissonance in a harmonic progression as a result of a basic understanding of music production. 
Be able to demonstrate the use of polyphonic instruments as a result of a basic understanding of music production.
