From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Parallel could mean:

In music:

  • Parallel key, the minor (or major) key of a major (or minor) key with the same tonic
  • Harmonic parallelism, also known as "harmonic planing" or "parallel voice leading"
  • Parallel fifths, also known as "consecutive fifths", involve the concurrence of successive intervals of a perfect fifth between two voices in parallel motion -- a harmonization generally forbidden in modern musical theory
