Or is that 12-ton? hmmm.
If I am writing a 12-tone piece for orchestra, traditionally, do all the instruments "participate" in playing the SAME tone row? Or can I have the "accompaniment" of sorts (say the string section) be playing their own?
I have this idea for a piece that starts out by having soft strings in flowing "chords" that are from a tone row, not repeating the same tone twice until finished with all 12. But then the "melody" is with the flute - using a different ordrered tone row.
I am trying to beef up my 20th-Century music in my portfolio for university types to be looking at. So I need to make sure this is reflective of the accepted practice.
