Lire entre les lignes : l’analyse de la disjonction melodique dans la musique tonale

Abstract : Because of the essentially conjunct character of tonal melody and the perceptual mechanisms that tend to divide the musical flow into layers corresponding to pitch areas, melodic disjunction has harmonic and polyphonic implications whose importance cannot be underestimated. The field of « compound melody" is particularly well suited to study the way composers have exploited melodic disjunction to entrust non-polyphonic instruments with pieces that simulate the most recognizable elements of polyphonic writing. The logical relationship between compound melodies and their underlying polyphonies is, however, less easy to establish than one might think: subtle techniques make this repertoire the world of "trompe-l’oreille ». Several tools are proposed in this study to facilitate the analysis.
