Harmony comes from latin harmony, although its more remote origins refer to a Greek word that means "combination" or “Adjustment” . The term can be used to name the combination from sounds simultaneous that, although different, are consistent. The concept is also used in reference to the variety of sounds, measurements and pauses well arranged . For example: “What I like about this orchestra is the harmony it achieves in its compositions”, “I am studying harmony in the conservatory”, “This style of music is not characterized by its harmony”.
Specifically, within the musical field, we could say that harmony is the term used to refer to the relationship established between the different chords, more specifically the organization of the same, and that is what allows, along with others elements, that a composition is not only pleasant to the ear but of great quality.
The scales, the tone, the movements, the links, the tension or the rest are some of the elements that must be taken into account when establishing the harmony of a song or when analyzing it.
The concept has extramusical meanings, in relation to the balance of the proportions between the different parts of a whole . The harmonic is always considered as beautiful or nice .
The proportion and correspondence of one thing with another , therefore, is harmony: “If you paint the walls of these colors, you will lose the harmony of style”, “I need to change the chairs to achieve harmony in the classroom”.
Harmony is also the friendship and good correspondence. When two people are in harmony, they have no problems with each other, but they maintain a peaceful relationship that does not cause inconvenience: “We have talked about our differences and we are in harmony again”, "To maintain harmony in a couple, the important thing is to maintain respect".
It is common to talk about family harmony. In this case, it is established that in order to achieve it, it is necessary to bet that each member has their space, that there is organization and order, that tolerance and respect be chosen…
In colloquial language, the term is used as synonymous with inner peace or calm : “I am in harmony thanks to yoga”, “When I arrive at my house and I sit on the couch with a glass of red wine, I feel that I recover harmony”.
In addition to all of the above we would have to highlight that there is currently a cosmetics company that is called Armonía Bio. The main feature offered by that is that it is responsible for preparing and developing all its products using only plants and extracts of plant origin.
There is also, on the other hand, Animal Harmony. This is the name of a non-profit association whose main objective is to help as normal development as possible of all those children who have some type of illness or disability. To help them achieve a better quality of life, it is responsible for putting them in relation to animals, which will help them improve not only what they would be in their physical growth but also emotionally.
