Class - what do I mean when I use the word tonality? How is the tonality defined by the harmony and melody?
thanks for the link. i actually looked at that before i posted the question but it didn't seem to help me. it defines tonality but i don't really understand the second question.
I should think that, if a harmony or melody is intended to be light-hearted or even humorous, the tonality would reflect those. And if a harmony or melody is intended to be gloomy and funereal, the tonality would reflect those, too. How would those different emotions be reflected, do you think?
