The inspiration around Dissonant Harmony is based on the way western culture views “harmony” and how there is “dissonance” in other musical work that is not Euro-centric. In the same way for us, most people cannot understand our disorders, but because we are here, and we (try to) thrive. We are artists who work together to support each other in confidence and tenderness while sharing opportunities and skills - we create our own harmony together and in our communities. Each artist in our collective brings and shares their own unique skills and talents and perspectives. As a whole, our work centres mental health, neurodivergence, and queer/trans experiences.
