Homorhythmic.


Having all parts or voices moving in the same rhythm, hence a special type of Homophony.

Homs (Oller), Joaquim


(b Barcelona, 21 Aug 1906). Catalan composer. He had cello lessons with Armengol (1917–22), trained to become an engineer (1922–9) and studied composition with Gerhard (1930–36). Works of his were performed at the ISCM festivals of 1937, 1939 and 1956, and at several Barcelona festivals in the 1960s; in 1967 he received a prize from the city of Barcelona for Presències. In his early compositions he employed a free counterpoint, already moving towards atonality, and from 1954 he used 12-note serial techniques. His music shows great unity and clarity of structure, achieving an intense expressivity with a minimum of means. He has contributed articles on 20th-century music to Imagen y sonido, Serra d’or and La vanguardia. In addition he has written a seminal study on the life and works of Gerhard. During the 1980s and 90s he received numerous awards, and his works have been widely performed. Although his music has remained loyal to modernism, most of his later works do not adhere to strict 12-note technique.
