In the medieval Music, the false-bumblebee indicates a consistent process of Improvisation in the addition of two voices parallel with a preexistent melody - often Gregorian -, the upper part being located a quad above the intermediate part, and the low , a third below.
the false-bumblebee - whose first traces go back to the 13th century - is opposed to the Déchant and the counterpoint, since it does not use - or little - the contrary movement. It is connected on the other hand with the parallel organum, and especially with the Gymel - because of the almost exclusive use of the imperfect consonances (the third and the Sixte, compared to the low one). The cantus firmus - i.e. the fragment of Plainsong, generally called “Tenor” - is often placed at the intermediate voice of the building.
Even if at the time, the concept of agreement does not exist yet, one can analyze the false-bumblebee like a Accord of sixth moving on different the degree S from the musical scale.
