Illustration of suspension configuration
A configuration consisting of a preparation, suspension and resolution in successive adjacent time-spans within at least a two-voice context.
The suspension and resolution of this configuration invariably form a linear-pair, because an arpeggiation would imply that the
notes existed simultaneously at some prior level; hence, the first note
of the suspension can not be considered delayed in relation to the first.
Komar's definition subsumes both downward and upward resolutions
of delayed notes (Komar, 1971).
