A chord which when struck or sung requires to be resolved into a concord. (A Dictionary of Musical Terms)

A combination of tones that are unresolved, jarring.

"No such thing as discord exists in the molecule. Discordance results from chords producing differentiation and may be equated by the proper chord of harmony. Every gaseous molecule is a resonator to any and all vibrations, whether concordant or discordant. That which we term discord exists in sound itself, not in matter." The Snell Manuscript

"I find in my researches, as to the condition of molecules under vibration, that discordance cannot exist in the molecule proper; and that it is the highest and most perfect structural condition that exists; providing that all the progressive orders are the same. Discordance in any mass is the result of differentiated groups, induced by antagonistic chords, and the flight or motions of such, when intensified by sound, are very tortuous and zigzag; but when free of this differentiation are in straight lines. Tortuous lines denote discord, or pain; straight lines denote harmony, or pleasure. Any differentiated mass can be brought to a condition of harmony, or equation, by proper media, and an equated sympathy produced." Keely and His Discoveries, Chapter VII

"Differentiation of mass, produces negatization to coincident action. By changing the balance of the triune polar flows, one differentiates the mass chord and disrupts any possibility of harmonious or "coincident action". The mass is the result of a combination of these flows." Keely and His Discoveries

"Discord, indeed, involves a continuous change of phase, and it will be seen that if the penduluums are purposely adjusted for a slight discord, the pen will trace all the possible phases of the approximate harmony in succession." Harmonies of Tones and Colours - Developed by Evolution, page 38
