Choose parts by Other and Hocketting

Hocketting refers to the practice of throwing a melody about from part to part in the middle of a phrase or tune. The fractal tune Calling to each other across the valley would be a good example. This is a term originating in Medieval music. The name probably comes from the latin ochetus = hiccup.

In Tune Smithy, these tunes use the Order of Play | Choose parts by Other in the menu for the Parts window (Ctrl + 9) configured in the Choose Parts by Other window (Ctrl + 52) to pass the tunes for each part to the other parts. That's one way to achieve hocketting in Tune Smithy. One of the other options in this menu can also be used for hocketting - the Parts by Tune Numbers option

To find out more

Most of the tunes can continue endlessly (for all practical purposes). So, in these recordings, they fade out at the end of the clip.

To find out more, see Tune Smithying.

* Note, some of these clips may not play correctly in your web player, especially if you use Quicktime - seems to be some sort of an issue to do with the exceedingly short notes in them. You may get stuck notes or notes left out altogether They play fine normally on soundcards and synths, and play fine in real time in Tune Smithy. It's mainly an issue with the quicktime embedded player.
