Quote from: KevinP on August 07, 2007, 06:53:50 PMTextbooks always say don't double, say, a trumpet and a flute at the unison because you'd never hear the flute. Fair enough. But I've always been curious: what if you doubled one trumpet, unmuted and one flute but you raised the flute by one half-step? Both are marked ff. Under this the strings are doing a tonal (to the trumpet's tonality) accompaniment mf pizzicato figure.Would the dissonance--notice I'm not saying 'flute'--be heard?
Quote from: Mark G. Simon on August 08, 2007, 05:49:42 AMDo I understand you to mean that you want the flute to create an apparent timbral distortion of the trumpet line, rather than a distinct part of its own? I think this would be more effective at a quiet dynamic, if it's effective at all. At fortissimo the flute is just going to be lost.
