    Composer Of Notes

    So “Tension” seems to be a common word in briefs these days. As a composer I’ve leaned towards the musical definition of tension as harmonic tension. Sometimes that is what they want but listening to some of the examples I hear no harmonic tension at all. So I think sometimes they just want something that builds dynamically without harmonic tension. Thoughts?


    You could also have melodic tension by using repeated motifs or unusual scales or you can think of rhythmic tension (repeated rhythmic figures)
