THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2013

QUOTE:
“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.”
AUTHOR: Sergei Prokofiev
MEANING OF THE QUOTE:
"Dissonance in music (different sounds that do not blend pleasantly
  together) should be used like spices are used in food; overuse will 
  spoil the product."
