MasterClass preview - PEDAL POINT MasterClass

A pedal point is a great composing tool for creating tension. I was using Cm as my tonal centre. All harmonies that I’ve created using C bass note, making more – less dissonant chord quality. This harmony battle creates tension, particularly when used in a minor key.
PEDAL POINT definition: A pedal point is a sustained note during which the harmony above it changes in some way so that the overall sound becomes dissonant. Pedal point is wanting to pull the harmony back to the root whilst the changing chords above it are pulling the harmony elsewhere.
