Music Theory

New Musical Words (to me)

Disjunct and Conjunct are two terms I encountered for the first time yesterday. Disjunct is music that is broken up or does not flow or lacks consistency (the introduction in Beethoven’s 5th). Conjunct is more flowing or joined together.

In all they decades I’ve been around music and musicians these two terms just came up yesterday. You never know what you don’t know. The more I learn the more I learn how little I really know!
