Default Re: What's most/least important in music

"it doesn’t really matter if something is hard to play or not. The thing is, what does it do to your mind when you listen to it? Where does it take you?" - Marten Hagstrom, from Meshuggah

This is one of the best musical quotes ever.

What TheGroceryMan was talking about is what music does to you. What I was talking about in regards to musical elements was what makes it up, the combinations of pitch, harmony, rhythm, metre, timbre, dynamics are what moves someone and makes them enjoy music. What you put it in is what someone else will feel - sub-consciously or consciously - on the listening end.
