Hexachord

In music, especially in musical set theory, a hexachord is a collection of six pitch classes, often one of two ordered hexachords in a tone row or set form. Hexachords may be used to create invariance and combinatoriality, and often a melody and its accompaniment will be drawn from different hexachords.
