Is there a word that means the opposite of harmony?

I can't even watch this without cracking up. These girls just kill me. This video would have been even longer, by the way, but my arms got tired of holding up the camera. They kept at it for another 15 or 20 minutes. I can't decide what I like best, the way that Ree's songs go on and on and on forever, the fact that she kills off the bee in the first mermaid song, that neither girl is thrown by the other's simultaneous wailing, or how Ro's last song incorporates parts of Ree's song when I would have sworn they couldn't even hear each other over the din. Classic. Can't wait to hear what their music-school graduate dad has to say about this one. (He's traveling home from London right now.)

    Oh my. it always amazes me how little kids can "sing" a monologue that can on forever and ever and ever and they call it singing. So funny.

  2. Dissonance? Cacophony? Disharmony?

    Judging from the video, the second one is what you're looking for, I think.

    P.S. I like "moomaids" too.

  3. P.S. Can I just tell you how much I needed a good laugh after the day I've had. Thank you, M3. A thousand times... thank you.

  4. I can't stop laughing. My grand daughter sings the same way. How do they do this? At first I thought moomaids was mormon. I just love your girls and the fun and laughter they have in their lives.

    Definitely, Cacophony!

    At least you aren't bored with silence at your house.

  7. At first I thought, "Well, this kept them quiet for awhile," but that's not so. It kept them occupied, which is just as good. Excitement should soon be at fever pitch around your place, what with Santa getting ready to stop by.

    And this year he'll be making a stop at Catherine and Hanna's place as well. So kewl.

  9. I'm laughing my head off here. A very "modern" symphony.

    Reminds me of home (way back). Between my twin and I and 3 other siblings all within 5 years of age - we would have the piano, violins, trumpets and drums going at the same time while all singing. I thought everyone lived like that.

    Great lyrics. There is some talent there. Is there a smash children's album lurking about just waiting to be captured by an observant mom? Time will tell. We'll sign the waitlist!
    As always love and peace to you and yours. Thanks for sharing humor, beauty and wisdom.

    Cute as always. And when they get their musical degrees too, you can play this at their graduation party/

    I think when they take chorus in school the teacher will ask them to just move their lips while the class sings :). Very funny. I remember riding in the car with my mother and singing the names of books I had read.

    Once the Kitty Cat song started I couldn't help but think of Phoebie from Friends and her "Smelly Cat" song. hehe This is more classic cuteness from the Salsa twins. LOVED it!!! The dead bee part was probably my fave. tee hee :)Melissa

    This is such an awesome age!

  24. Hilarious!! It's so fun to hear them both singing at the same time and not bothered by the other one at all. They truly get along so well!!!

    My favourite part was when Ree added, 'Mommy, mommy, I love you!'

    Absolutely adorable!!

  25. My sons are addicted to this video. They want to watch it over and over.
    After a while you can sort of start to hear harmony.
    Sort of.
