A conclusion and overview of Dissonance. Greek song and drama was concerned with bringing the sensation of sound within the enclosure of perception, at times against the categories central to Greek conceptions of culture. Greek auditory art’s engagement with sound is described as figure, as affect, and as melody. These themes are illustrated through a reading of Euripides’ Bacchae.

Keywords:   aesthetics, affect, auditory art, auditory culture, Bacchae, Euripides, figure, melody, noise, sound
