Often in music, you see a passage that consists of a sequence of octaves. One can call this series something like a 'run of octaves.' However, if you have run of single notes (not intervals), what would you call it? I know that this would normally just be called a 'run,' as the assumption would probably be that it a 'run' is a run of single notes, but in order to contrast it with a run of octaves or a run of any other interval, simply calling it a 'run' is too ambiguous. Is there a simpler, unambiguous term that denotes a series of single notes or do is that the most concise term? Or, is there a term other than 'single note' that I can use? 'Single note' just sounds so clunky and awkward.
edit: by run , I was thinking about the way a keyboard player might play a series of notes (usually of the same duration) with one hand. For example, a player might play a rising scale in eighth notes, all of which are played as octaves. A run of single notes would a run composed of a series of notes that are each played alone.
edit 2: example score:
Examples of what I mean by runs of octaves and single notes (individual notes are arbitrary).
I am getting the sense that I am using the term 'run' incorrectly as well. These could be any series of arbitrary notes in or not in the scale.
