a counterpane

In music, counterpoint is the relationship between two or more voices that are independent in contour and rhythm, and interdependent in harmony. It has most commonly been identified in Western music, developing strongly in the Renaissance, and also dominant in much of the common practice period, especially in Baroque music. the term comes from the Latin punctum contra punctum ("note against note"). the adjectival form contrapuntal shows this latin source more transparently.

two parts with individual distinctive melodic significance and rhythmic independence running together (singing in unison or octaves is not counterpoint). Thus, the texture of music which is made up of individual melodic strands woven together is contrapuntal (or polyphonic). the opposite is homophonic texture where one melodic idea is supported by accompanying harmony. counterpoint in which two (or more) strands can function equally well as bass or treble to each other is invertible counterpoint. If applied to two parts, it is called double counterpoint.

the technique of combining melodic lines to create a polyphonic texture
