**compound interval**is very similar to the process you can use to build a

**compound interval**. Just reduce the

**compound interval**to a simple

**interval**by putting both notes in the same octave, either by moving the first note up or the second note down.

Then, what are simple intervals?

A **simple interval** is an **interval** spanning at most one octave (see Main **intervals** above). **Intervals** spanning more than one octave are called compound **intervals**, as they can be obtained by adding one or more octaves to a **simple interval** (see below for details).

Secondly, how do you find the interval in music theory? To find the **interval** between 2 notes just find the pitch of the lowest note and start counting until you reach the top note. When counting **intervals** you always start from the bottom note and count both notes. E.g., to find the **interval** between C and G, begin on C and count up the scale until you reach G.

Beside above, how do you invert compound intervals?

**Compound intervals invert** to their first octave counterparts. That is, subtract one octave from the original **interval**. [e.g. Using half-step numbers; Major-ninth is 14°, subtract 12 degrees (14°-12°=2°). 2° is a Major-second.

What intervals are dissonant?

Consonant **intervals** are usually described as pleasant and agreeable. **Dissonant intervals** are those that cause tension and desire to be resolved to consonant **intervals**. These descriptions relate to harmonious **intervals**. In music theory, consonances are traditionally divided into two groups: perfect and imperfect.
