Default Re: Homophonic and Polyphonic Harmonies

Well if i remember right from my GCSE music, homophonic is where there is playing of the same note at the same or a different octave by one or more instrument and polyphonic is where you have one or more instruments playing more than one different note. If we're talking about modern music. Well it's probably quicker to mention bands that DON'T have polyphonic vocal harmonies in their songs somewhere. Most bands do at some point. As for homophonic, some bands such as Serj and A7X like to record their voices twice on recordings with one being an octave above the other, that would be a homophonic harmony.
