HARMONY

Is the discipline that relates to the art of the simultaneous combination of different sounds. Using a choir to bring together individuals of different cultural backgrounds and ethnicities is the easiest and most immediate way to open communication channels between these people. It is essentially a biological fact that the vibrating vocal cords, due to the effect of the physical/acoustic laws, enter into affinity with those of the neighbouring singer; furthermore, after a very short time the singers’ bodies will all vibrate, transforming what is apparently only harmony between sounds into a far more effective and interesting harmony between people. This is one of the most fascinating and powerful aspects of making music, which indeed can turn into a more precise and controlled experience if the potential singers are also entrusted with a musical instrument; at this stage, harmony also contributes to timbre, which is also a carrier of very precise meanings.
