English term or phrase: featuring second
Sutartinės constitute an important archaic part of Lithuanian polyphonic songlore. Many sutartinės can be regarded as a kind of Schwebungsdiaphonie. They are based on polyphonic and polyrhythmic patterns resulting from intertwining vocal parts. Typically, two voices perform simultaneously, creating sequences of chords that, in their featuring seconds, are mostly — of course, from the viewpoint of Western music theory — dissonant.

Polish translation:obecne sekundy [kontekst]
Explanation:
[...] tworząc sekwencje interwałów, które ze względu na obecne wśród nich sekundy mają [...] brzmienie dysonansowe.

propozycja

Nie wiem jak to ładniej ująć, ale chodzi o to, że śpiewacy sutartines, szczególnie ze starszego pokolenia, łączą melodie, które w wielu miejscach tworzą interwały dysonansowe - sekundy wielkie i małe. Nota bene nie są to akordy, bo dwóch śpiewaków nie może zaśpiewać akordu, chyba że któryś z nich potrafi śpiewać dwugłosem (co zdarza się w Tuwie, ale nie na Litwie).

Reference: complex chords featuring seconds and tri-tones

Reference information:
If you do this again, you should play all through the same cab or IR, preferably with a recorded input so everything is identical. That input should include power chords, complex chords featuring seconds and tri-tones, single notes, diads (pedal steel style bends both low and high on the neck), triads, long notes/chords sustaining into silence - https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/friedman...

--------

Chords are built on 3rds today because over time, we have become used to closer intervals. The earliest written Gregorian Chants were meant to be sung in unison or at the octave. Later, the open fifth and fourth were considered acceptable. Anything closer was considered dissonant.

In later centuries, however, the third and sixth were deemed sufficiently melodious, and today we hardly blink at chords featuring seconds and 7ths. - http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?p=6955048

-------

In music theory, the tritone is strictly defined as a musical interval composed of three adjacent whole tones.

[cut]

It is not possible to decompose a diminished fifth into three adjacent whole tones. The reason is that a whole tone is a major second, - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tritone

----

In Western music theory, a major second (sometimes also called whole tone) is a second spanning two semitones - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_second

------

(Redirected from Minor second)

A semitone, also called a half step or a half tone, is the smallest musical interval commonly used in Western tonal music - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semitone#Minor_second

-------

In modern Western tonal music theory, a diminished second is the interval produced by narrowing a minor second by one chromatic semitone - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diminished_second

-----

In classical music from Western culture, an augmented second is an interval that is sonically equivalent to a minor third, spanning three semitones, and is created by widening a major second by a chromatic semitone - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augmented_second
