Dear list, I wonder if there are any theories or research that has focused on the effect of matching partials in chords? What I am curious about is whether consonance is just the absence of dissonance or if it can be calculated on its own terms. I am looking for theories that have recognized matching partials as acting somewhat as "glue" between complex tones (not unlike the ideas of Stumpf (tonal fusion)). Thank you.
