Anywhere in the middle of some music, you could introduce
two simultanous voices. Example

c4 d e f |
% Split into two "chords" of music, sharing the same
% voice context (e.g. same stem directions and so on):
<{g2 g}{e4 d e c}>
% Split into two separate voices of music, that could
% have individual stem directions and so on:
<\context Voice=upper{\voiceOne g2 g}
 \context Voice=lower{\voiceTwo e4 d e c}>
% Continue with just one voice:
g4 f e d | c1

The macros \voiceOne and \voiceTwo set a number of properties
for the direction of stems, slurs, ties and dots. See the file
ly/ (or ly/ for the exact definitions
and a list of other useful macros.
